ThursdayThirteen #47 - Cloudy Skies Promise Rain

Make Time for Small Reflections

I do realize
many are weary of the
winter weather, but

here in Southern Cal
we are thrilled to finally
experience RAIN!

Today I share these
'cloudy sky collages' with

of continuing
moisture falling ... building up
our water table.

Ten inches so far
hoping for at least five more
ending a long drought.

Thirteen photographs
of skies we don't often see
in California ;--)
For others participating in T-13,
check the folks below:
Alice Audrey at Alice's Restaurant
Brenda at the Otherworld Diner
Colleen at Loose Leaf Notes
Izzy 'n Emmy
Janet at Fond of Snape
Mary at the Randomness of Me
Tamy at 3 Sides of Crazy
Sue at Life in the Urban Zoo
and perhaps others I don't know about.
If you're playing, be sure to say so
& leave your link.

Apparently there's a new T-13 site!

Those palm tree pictures make me long for no more winter. :)

Lovely pictures. We are having rainy days too here in Southern Ontario. Hopefully it means Spring has Sprung? Happy Valentine Day!

Mia Celeste said...

Thanks for the beautiful pictures of palm trees and thanks for sharing the things you're grateful for. Your list makes me smile.

Thanks for sharing the gorgeous pictures.

Wish it was spring already, but we have more snow coming instead :o(

Meanwhile I'm looking a big, fat flakes floating around in the air. Honestly, sometimes the go backward.

Joyce said...

Yay for rain! Your collages are lovely. :) I'll try to do a Thursday 13 post later on today. Have a lovely day, Virginia!

Betty said...

We got rain yesterday, but then that's not unusual for us here in Tennessee.

Hope you are having a good day, Virginia.

Great photos - glad you're getting the rain you need. We have a friend in N. California who was saying he needed rain too - I offered to box up some snow and send to him...

Sandee said...

We have rain here through the weekend. We are elated. The farmers are very, very happy too.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Sylvia K said...

Really beautiful photos! Too little rain is one thing we don't have to worry about in Seattle! Really neat post! Thanks!

Akelamalu said...

I suppose when you have sunshine all the time you look forward to a little respite. :)

George said...

You captured some beautiful pictures of the clouds, and I'm glad they are giving you some rain. We've been dry enough here for the past two years that we rejoice when it rains as well.

Karen said...

I think we all need a little spring.

Happy TT

Very lovely photos!

You are so creative and clever, these pictures are beautiful, and I love your words that accompany them!

It rained today because my daughter wore her 'hug a raindrop' t-shirt. So she says anyway.

Great T13 but a great site also, I love stopping by here to read. It's so relaxing!

we need it too -- in spite of all the snow we had.

Last year at this time we had 12 feet of snow in the mtns. This year 4. Strange how the tide turns.

Unknown said...

You can keep your rain, I'd rather have a mountain of snow. :)

Maude Lynn said...

Those pictures are stunning!

Just another rain-grateful Cali desert gal checking in to say:
Happy TT!
I'm up with TT#26- A Lil Too Straight?

Julie said...

Beautiful pics! :)

Karen said...

I'm so glad you're getting all that much needed rain--woo hoo! It's actually been mild (upper 50s) this past week--though we did have a fire alert the past day (my first!). Really gusty winds, low pressure, and no precipitation are apparently the perfect conditions for fire.
