We have had so much rain in the past two months that now our rainfall for six and a half months equals the normal yearly total. In fact, this year we have had so much rain that any day when the sun shines for four hours is a good day to mow, even though the mower tires get covered with grass. Yesterday morning our neighbor had her lawn mowed and within the hour it rained over an inch, two more in the evening. Living in hot climates previously, I guess I got too used to seeing the sun for most of the year.
The rain did not deter the hummingbirds from getting out in the rain. As you can see, they fluffed their feathers and braved the wet conditions. This was not true of all the creatures. The turtle hightailed it to the bushes where he could protect himself, so truly rainy days are for the birds.
