Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I keep hearing about 90 degree temperatures and wonder where they are! It's been cold and chilly here. Rain, wind, and coolness envelop us! Yesterday the distant mountains were white with fresh snow. Reports are that 10 - 14 inches of it fell at the summit of our closest mountain range. Farmers are trying to bring in the first cutting of hay (it's wet!) and the cherry crop is in danger because of the frequent rains. The strawberry harvest is a week or two behind, as it's not been warm enough to ripen them. It seems strange to have to wear a jacket when out and about, after all summer will be here officially in a few short days! I'm trying to go with the flow, but with outdoor graduation events planned for Rylan this week-end, I am feeling the stress of it all. With this much snow, I'm wondering if I should cancel the cabin potluck for family and friends and come up with an alternative venue. If we can get everyone there, the campfire will keep us toasty warm --- but the roads could be a slippery mess. We'll give in another day or two and then decide. . .

. . .in the meantime, my tranquility has been replaced with a fair amount of anxety!

Prayers and encouraging advice welcome! :) If you live where it's 90 degrees --- I'd be happy to share some coolness with you!

  1. It's a strange year in our part of the world, isn't it? I'm praying that you will have peace as the weekend approaches. And that you will know whether or not to change your plans. Should be do a 'sunshine dance'? We don't need a rain dance! ~Adrienne~

  8. I am not fond of this rain and cold either ...but think that 90's would not be too pleasant either. Hope we have not skipped Summer altogether this year though !!

  9. Strange weather! I'll share some heat with you if you'll share some cool with me. Ninety-eight degrees here and we're sweltering.

    Don't worry...there's always a Plan B. And things will work out fine. They will.

  10. We've had terrible weather here and it was quite hot. Many of the crops are flooded.

    Next week's forecast is for highs in the 70s to replace the 90 degree temps of the past week. So much for AVERAGES.

    I don't have a blog anymore, therefore, I come as "anonymous". My name is Miriam and I just wanted to tell you that you have a beautiful blog! It is a pleasure to come here - and your photos soothe my soul.
    Thank you.
    Namaste (God in me salutes God in you)

  14. Interesting how the weather affects our lives--you are having cooler temps and rain which seems heaven-sent to us down here in Atlanta where the temps have been upper 90s and we are well into the second year of extreme drought conditions! Please do send a little of your weather to us and I send best wishes and prayers that your plans come together. Love your blog and am blessed by it each time I visit.

  15. Well I am sitting on my couch, in my flannel jammies, fleece robe and a blanket over me. I am very grumpy and cold. So my heart goes out to you. I will pray that it all turns out xoxoxoxo Clarice

  16. Is that your gorgeous garden path? I'll tell you where your 90's are, they are HERE!!! They come complete with dripping humidity here in the South, why not come for a visit or at least send us some cool rain!

  17. What a surprise that you have all the rain and coolness! It's still hot and muggy here....but will cool some the rest of the week (we hope!)...

    I do hope your weekend goes well. Sounds like you have some wonderful activities planned...but oh my! the enormity of it all! I'm stressed just reading about it!!! I'm sure it will be wonderful, though. Everything you do is so beautiful!

  18. The weather is so strange everywhere, I think! We are having nice weather, but windy for days - very unusual. My sister told me that it just snowed in MT - in June! Crazy!

  23. I'll take some of the cooler weather and some of the rain. We experienced temps over 100 this week while I was working outside doing laundry for the firemen at the Hyde Co, NC fire. I'm at home now and our grass is almost dead. Sounds like I'm whining, doesn't it? Wish I could sit in your rocker and look at that beautiful moist green grass.
