Weekend Reflections – Rainy Days


It has been raining here in Tulsa lately, a lot. It is the all day soft steady kind rather than the hard driving flood producing damaging kind of rain. We have been going through a drought so hopefully we are breaking it. Northeast Tulsa is called green country because of all the trees and general lushness. All that lushness requires a lot of water and Tulsa gets an average of 47 inches of rain a year and so far this year we are about 10 inches short of that so I hope we are making it up a little bit.

47 inches a year sounds like a lot to me. That is almost four feet of rain a year!  No wonder we spend so much money on drainage projects and dams around here!

So what about you? Are you getting enough rain where you live?

    I’m a big fan of rainy day reflections. Well, I like to see them but rarely take any great ones, which I hope to remedy someday. I like this one a LOT!

      In Maine July was BEAUTIFUL, but we were still about 4 inches over the average rainfall. Culprit? Heavy thunderstorms but then they were gone.

    It has been raining so much here that I’m about ready to start building an ark. I’m not complaining though because we too have been in a drought for years.

    We have had everyday heavy rain in the last days… However I like the wet surface for reflection very much… Great photo…

    O_o What a strange coincidence, we have quite the same streetlights in a village near mine…

    Rainy reflections are always welcome : nice catch.
