When It Rains
After several days of very hot weather it has cooled off. We have had three nights of rain. The rainy season seems to have begun. It rained during the day today and that is somewhat unusual. The thunderstorms and heavy rains normally come in the middle of the night.
We had a couple of leaks and will get someone over to caulk obvious cracks and seal the roof in the areas that leaked. We didn't have any problems in our first year here. I guess we were lucky. One leak was around the kitchen skylight and the other was in the living room. We didn't see the living room leak until this morning. Big wet mess.....
The mountains will be emerald green very soon. As I have said before, July is the best month to visit. We will have another beautiful season. Aren't they all? You betcha.
The picture above was taken today. It is the view of the mountainside on which we reside. The clouds are very low today.
