Monsoon   Leave a comment

The monsoonal flow, so typical of summer here, brought us a trace of rain yesterday.  Our “moonsoons” are not much like the ones in India.  But it did stay cool and cloudy all day.

The redtailed hawk that’s been hanging around, hoping for squirrels, posed on a snag; but it was so dark and cloudy that he was only a dark blob to the camera.

Later, the clouds looked more ominous.

They only produced a bit of mist, though; but we got a spectacular sunset.

As the sky darkened, it got even better.

Early this morning, there was a bit more rain, and a magnificent double rainbow.  At least that’s what they said on the news this morning.  A morning rainbow is very rare here, and I missed it!
