Predictions of Rain

we have had many days of rain
it is raining now
we are to have periods of rain all weekend
with more rain to follow
floods are happening
we have mosquito's by the billions

summer in Saskatchewan is usually
dry
hot
with some thunderstorms
a tornado or two
and billions of grasshoppers

I don't know which is worse....

very warm thoughts out to our neighbours in
Maple Creek, Saskatchewan
who have had to evacuate their homes
due to the floods yesterday

Prayers go out to the people in the flood zones....

That's a beautiful photograph Catherine! Sorry to hear of the floods, that is never fun. I didn't realize you had tornados sometimes, that would be scary to me, but I don't mind a summer thunderstorm or two here or there!

So glad you are not in the flood area, prayers go out to those. Lovely photo.

Have a fabulous day!

lovely photo!
We've had a lot of rain as well, but no serious flooding near where I live. Tornadoes can happen here, but mostly don't. The last serious one I remember was in 2000.

What a wonderful picture, I must say I love the rain... But then again I live in the desert were we usually don't get much. We do have some flash floods here. But not enough to do any harm... And Thank goodness we don't have any Tornados, that would really scare me. After hearing all the natural disasters latley, I might just stay here in the desert and put up with the heat!
Hugs, Linda

There were a couple of tornadoes west and south of this area a couple of nights ago and some lives were lost. We had mostly heavy wind and rain here. It's been an unusually wet June.

I love the sound of rain on our roof. We had rain overnight, however, in Melbourne we are not bound by floods. That first pic of the leaf is gorgeous, with the crystal rain drop. Catherine, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments. Much appreciated.

I'm glad you're safe from floods and hope your neighbors in Maple Creek get some relief from the rains soon. We're having wetter, colder weather than usual and although everything is so green and beautiful, I'm ready for more sun than clouds.

I'm sorry to hear about the flooding and evacuations, Catherine. It has been a strange summer all over the world this year... We have had VERY hot weather --which is rare for us in June. Makes me wonder what July and August are going to be.... Yipes!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

A few years ago I was caught in some "flash flooding" and know how scary and unpredictable heavy rain can be, so please stay safe and I hope the sun and the warmth return to you very soon!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Oh, Dear! I hope all of your neighbors are safe.

Great picture, Catherine! I thought about you the other day. I was watering our veg garden and the droplets gliding off the brocoli leaves made me think of how you'd get a picture of it...

Have a great weekend.

Connie said...

Lovely photo! But here's hoping we see nothing but sunshine REAL soon!!

Alina said...

I thought of you today when I read this quote (you may have heard of it) "He who dislikes the cat...was in his former life a Rat!" Thought it was so funny and true! Hope it makes you smile, and I hope the rain turns into a harmless, soft drizzle. Thank you for your beautiful comment on my last post. It made my day XO

Laurie said...

Here in Michigan, we're also tired of the rain, which is making prime mosquito breeding grounds. I already can't wait for a frost! My heart goes out to all of you who are facing more rain and flooding, hang in there. It has to stop sometime!

ilovemyhouse said...

Well my dear, you know my feelings about rain. It s**ks. (sorry)Here it's dry but no sign of summer yet. Wishing you a happy Sunday anyway. XX

rachel said...

Lovely new look to your blog! Shame about the weather news though. Cats hate rain, too.

Forever Foster said...

We hope that the rain calms down and you get some sunshine soon.

Marg said...

Sorry you are having all that darn rain. Send some here but that is a long ways. Hope that ole sun makes an appearance really soon for you.
That is a lovely picture.
Have a wonderful day.

What a contrast in weather conditions! Hopefully a little more rain is better than a prolonged drought.

Hot Rocks said...

Oh dear! I have been following the floods on the news. Normally it is us, here in the foothills of Alberta, that suffer with the high rivers and flood problems, but seems like it is happening over on the other side this year! Hope it dries out for you soon, and may we all have lovely hot summers real soon...no mosquitoes! God knows, our summers are short enough!
