Wet, Wet, Wet!

It has already been a wet Summer here in Central PA, and now we've had even more rain for the whole weekend, including the leftovers from Tropical Storm Gordon moving in yesterday, and there looks to be even more rain for the rest of the week, including possible fallout from Hurricane Florence next weekend. So it's been very wet, and the landscape is a rich, lush green.

I couldn't do my customary Sunday walk in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park yesterday because it was pouring rain, so I did the walk today in a light, misty drizzle. No closeup shots today because downpours tend to wipe out details, so I took more panoramic shots so you can see the mist and the green. Despite the fact that it was a mist rather than a downpour, it was still a very wet walk!

Gum Run is full, too

  1. I haven't minded the rain as much as I've minded the extreme heat. I'll be glad when that's gone. Then we New Englanders can complain about the cold again.

    And, am I the only one who wants to slap anyone who says "It's not the heat, it's the humidity?" "Dude, I'm freakin' HOT, okay? I don't CARE exactly WHY."

  2. These are lovely, idyllic photos. Batten down yer hatches, Roy! Silver Fox, you are not the only one.
