Wednesday already...

     Glad for an escape yesterday. At around 3:40 pm it was really coming down hard with the rain outside, and then on top of it, there was hail--pea-sized at times. I was really not looking forward to going out in that with no coat and a very skimpy umbrella, but thankfully it was all gone and even a little sunny by the time I left work at 4. Another round of hail in the evening, but that batch was tiny too, so I could quell my urge to run out and fling my body over my poor, defenseless car. ;P I really don't like hail.

     Spotted a female bluebird getting an earthworm off the road on my way home from work Monday. I probably mention it here every time I see a bluebird, but I just can't get over my amazement at seeing them in my quite suburban neighborhood (with good-sized trees).

     Finished up tonight's writing session, getting my totals up on LJ, doing little stuff...and looked out the window to see a rainbow! First one of 2009. I'd been looking all over last night, with some sunlight amidst the hail, with no success--and now I hadn't even noticed it was raining. Went over to the cat room for a better view--and spotted my first vulture of 2009, flying in circles under the rainbow. A double treat! =)

Vultures and rainbows seem like an odd combination indeed! Sounds like there was some very lovely treats. I can certainly understand the thrill of seeing a bluebird--it must be such a pretty sight!

Here's hoping the hail has gone for good.

It certainly was!

I think it was a female bluebird, but still pretty.

Thanks! At least it's just showers and not storms in the forecast. =)

Bluebirds in your area. I am envious. I do not remember there be
any before. Neat on the rainbow, was it bright one.

It seems so strange when there are no meadows! Maybe somebody is feeding them mealworms or something.

It was just pieces of a rainbow for me, but I think Dawn's sister saw a full rainbow and called Dawn, but she couldn't see anything.
