It's Raining

We're having a nice soaking rain right now, as I listen to the Robins sing their summer morning/dusk song, and I just heard my first Mourning Dove of the year. The rain is expected to start freezing this morning turning to 3-6 inches of the white $%&@ throughout the day. We're under a winter storm advisory until tomorrow morning. Laundry is my job today and I plan to bag up more stuff to drop off at the local ARC store. Time to crank up the Bose, put on another pot of coffee and get to work!

It's raining here in Michigan too right now Lynne. Looking forward to sunnier days! Pour me a cup of coffee too please!

Robins??? Mourning doves??? You're in MN's Banana Belt! :)

Sounds like typical March weather--in Minnesota or here in DC!

Forgot that Mourning Doves aren't a year round bird there as they are here in DC. One winter morning I counted over 20 of them sucking up the safflower seeds underneath my feeders.

Sounds like a good laundry day.

We have rain predicted for tomorrow and I hope we get it. Isn't it wonderful to hear the birds singing out again? Hope the snow passes you by.

We can commiserate together. It was -17 here this morning! But at least it's not snowing.

Hola Lynne,
Have Ii ever told you it never really rains in Lima??
Well, on Saturday evening he heard thunder!! which I've never heard in this city! and then RAIN??!!??
I mean, this city is not built for rain!! If the weather gets crazy like this we'll just be underwater in a few hours and houses will collapse, as most are flat and square :S
Crazy weather lately...
Besos,
Mel

p.s. don't work too much!!

I've been enjoying the rain here in PA too, happy that it's not snow or ice!

Hope your spring comes soon.

We had a light morning rain here in Ohio. The robins love it. Laundry is my job today too :) I might have to call in sick if the sun keeps coming out though!

Marsha said...

You have robins???? Wow, I have been on the lookout everyday but nothing even remotely spring related around here. No doves either. I'm far enough west that it is a blizzard warning here.

At least we don't have snow (I'm keeping my fingers crossed.) But you hear Robins so that's a good sign. Our snow is gone and now I'm looking at bare and brown for a couple of months. Luckily, we have the waterfowl migration in the Atlantic flyway to keep us happy.

Oh boy... Drive safe on the way to work, sounds icy!

Hopefully you can find virtual warmth out there, like Ruthie's pics of CA :)

Jayne said...

Uh... it's 82 degrees here? (Ducking to avoid the snowballs being thrown my way...)

Love ya... I really do! ;c)

Tina said...

Lynne,
Hope you got your laundry completed and are seeing snow accumulations on the low side or maybe it didn't show up at all..yea!!..think springy thoughts of Hasty Brook..spring is out there somewhere!!

KaHolly said...

Isn't it fun, all the little signs of spring? I heard my first mourning dove yesterday morning and it stopped me dead in my tracks. Then, with a gentle sigh of pleasure, I continued on my way.

Ruth said...

Your weather is coming our way preceded by "damaging winds". Today was just plain miserable...rain and 33F. I need some sun, even if the air is cold!

Mary said...

Maybe it's the last of the white stuff, Linne. I hope so.

Kallen305 said...

I hope your snow is gone and already starting to melt. Love hearing the robins spring song!

Whew, yesterday was rotten, wasn't it? We went to a turkey hunting seminar at Fleet Farm last night from 6:30 to 8:00 and when we got back out to the parking lot, our door locks were frozen shut!! At least the sun in shining this morning :-)

troutbirder said...

@#$%^&* You got that right. I think we had hurricane winds last night and zero this morning (here in the true banana belt of Minnesota.
