The Last Winter Rains

Gloomy skies and the rhythm of rain on my windshield escorted me to work this morning.

Abby didn’t feel much like going to work today, and with rain and wind waking me up two hours before my alarm, neither did I.

Rain is forecast through the entire weekend, accompanied by a cold front. There are few things in the world colder than cold rain. Even snow seems warmer and more inviting somehow.

I encouraged Abby to go home at midday if she wasn’t able to work the entire day. Her recovery from last month’s serious illness is still coming in fits and starts, and she is still weak.

This is winter’s last breath. Spring is coming.

This eery tree stands fast against the gathering clouds. Soon it will be green.

  1. Same weather here, basically, though probably a few degrees warmer… This is a big change from the same time a year ago, at least for us.

    In the same week of 2011, we were in the 80s and hadn’t seen rain for a while, about to start the hottest, driest summer of our lives… I’m hoping that the cooler, wetter weather will be a trend. :-)
