Yesterday it RAINED!! In the morning it was sometimes sprinkles, but very soon it would begin to rain harder…THEN we saw THIS as we went to dinner…The girls who worked at the restaurant thought about getting in the restaurant freezer for a few seconds, I told them to take me with them….we didn’t do it but I was more than a little nervous…This is the weird cloud from the left end to the far right end…it stretched a LONG way!
The clouds started to spread, and spread, and spread and then it POURED! It poured on and off for HOURS..
This little lady came to visit in between drenchings, poor baby…so wet!! What I couldn’t believe is that around 8 pm a male cardinal was out IN THE POURING RAIN…sitting on the branch and then hopping down to eat…
This morning our family of regular visitors, the raccoon family came sneaking out of the woods. I NEVER see them in the day light… until it’s almost 8 pm, they’re not around… They were soaking wet. The mother came out first and suddenly we heard the crows. They were high up in the trees and scolding the mother raccoon. She kept staring up at the tree tops, keeping an eye on them, all the while encouraging her babies to follow her up to the deck..Up they ran, soaking wet, looking bedraggled. I think the birds and the raccoons didn’t get much to eat yesterday and they were HUNGRY! No pictures of the raccoons and crows…I was too busy watching the drama unfold.
One little baby ventured out into the yard with the crows still yelling and screaming at them and Mama raccoon called it back. At that point, EVERYBODY left and nobody ate!
