Wet Birds

It seemed like a good idea when I headed out this morning. It was drizzling, nothing more than a sprinkle. Little did I know that by the time I left my umbrella in the car because it was only raining lightly and my hood would suffice that it wasn’t going to stay that way. With each step I took the rain came down a little harder and faster. I tried to take as many photos as I could between trying to shelter the camera and make sure the lens was dry. By the time I decided that the outing was a bust, my shoes were caked with sand and I was cringing at the thought of that sand embedding itself into the car floor mats. I decided to see how close I could get to my feathered friends, who did not seem the least bit bothered by the rain. They steadfastly ignored me as I invaded their space. Finally I couldn’t see through the rain which was dripping down my face and decided to call it. I wasn’t aware of the deep puddles until I was a few feet in. With the downpour it was hard to see much. Lucky for me that solved the problem of the sandy shoes. I sloshed back to my car and as I was putting it in gear I noticed a sheriff’s truck pulling into the parking lot. What a way to start the day!!! (And it wasn’t even 8:00 yet!)

“The rain, rain, rain
Came down, down, down
In rushing, rising riv’lets
‘Til the river crept out of its bed
And crept right into Piglet’s”

Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day

It has been a particularly rainy and windy last few weeks. Ari, who is not fond of rain and/or wind, has not been happy. Last week she had to go outside and do her business in a torrential downpour- twice. This is a pup who will hold it forever if she feels that weather conditions are unfavorable. Poor girl! We are keeping our fingers crossed for drier days as we welcome the fall colors!!

This post is working double time in response to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Liquids and The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O.
