Rain, rain go away

It's raining. Again.

We had one awesome day of sunshine (spread out over two days) and now we are back to rain.

Normally I like rain, but we have a new fire pit and haven't been able to use it since the night we purchased it -- because it's been raining. Argh!  Plus #4 is coming home with fiance-to-be this week.  As it is ftb's first time in the Western section of the U.S., I think a little of our usually glorious sunshine is in order for that occasion.

Last night we had our church's annual BBQ picnic. It was hot and sunny when we arrived at 5:00, cold and pouring rain by 6:00. Eventually the rain went away and a beautiful rainbow came out.

But . . .

Sheesh.  Everything is a sodden mess.

Random segue: today #6 heads out on his first trucker job. He will be driving with someone more experienced, but, well, it's a bit of a pull for Dad and me to see him go for six weeks.

Enough rain is enough -- but that is one beautiful photo! I absolutely love a double rainbow. Meanwhile, hope the rain clears off for the visit of 4+her guy!

Hi Catherine-
My name is Janera Jepson and I host the new Wednesday meme Wednesday Wickedness ( Don't let the tame throw you. We are a family oriented meme that's similar to Linda's Random Dozen. We base our questions each week on quotes from someone famous. This week is Frank Sinatra. Since Linda is taking time off I thought I'd invite you to play during the hiatus. We always post on Tuesdays (we're up now!) so players can play on either day. We hope that you will join us! :)
