Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Tuesday Morning Rain

We're in monsoon season now in rural Virginia. Yesterday, more than two inches poured down—I don't have a rain gauge, but an empty two-inch deep bowl was over-flowing. Today, we had rain off and on. On the way back from Kroger in Rocky Mount, we were in and out of showers. Here are some pictures I took from the passenger side of the old PT Cruiser:

This is somewhere between Redwood and Glade Hill.

Near Glade Hill School.

Approaching Union Hall.

Leaving Union Hall and headed for Penhook.

Headed for Home.

My pasture fence.

The house.

The driveway.

The irises blooming near the mailbox.

And then we were home. 

More rain is expected tonight and tomorrow.

Rained like crazy all day up until about an hour ago here just west of Fincastle. Water was roaring down our mountain! More tonite I think. Not sure how much more the ground can hold.
