While in Texas, we were hoping to see some warm sunshine, but it wasn't to be! It rained and rained and was cold almost the entire time we were there.
Back home, while we were gone, the sun shone most of the time, and a beautiful snow fell, and it was quite cold and beautiful. I got to see the snow for one short beautiful day after our return.
Upon our return back to Idaho, we must have brought the rain back with us, because it has been raining almost nonstop since we got back! All the snow that was here when we arrived home promptly melted the day after we returned!
Mud pies anyone? We've got you covered!
Wet dogs and muddy paws? Yup. Check!
Chickens that don't want to leave the coop because its too wet and muddy for them? Indeed!
And this weather pattern seems to be one that we may have to endure for the winter, according to the weather experts. I must say that there won't be many photo opportunities with such weather on board this winter!
My daughter and I were "given" a stomach virus by a relative while in Texas, and spent the last several days of our trip sick in bed. I had to fly home with unpleasant symptoms, something I hope never to repeat! It has taken me a few days to recuperate and I am still on the mend, as I also picked up a head cold along the way. However, I do feel much better today, and thankfully all that is behind us!
