It has been raining, hailing and just plain cool temps this week. I am impressed that I see people, via computer, still out in the mountains hiking. I am much too wimpy for that. I have been enjoying the lightning storms from my window though. My scorched trees (from a fire we had this spring) love the moisture, and the grass and new treelets have greened up immensely.
The darkness from the ever looming thunderclouds doesn’t incite much joy. I am waiting for the clear up and a chance to go hiking next week. Although there is darkness, the sound of rain is so soothing. Nature is a contradiction. Destructive power and beauty wrapped up in one thing.
