The photos were taken by my sister today - which was actually mostly sunny, but at the first signs of a rather brief shower of rain, we grabbed umbrellas and pulled on our gumboots, mine paired with a charity shopped red hoodie, black tights, and shorts bought from Supré (back when their clothes weren't made in China.) Also, sorry for yet another post with a title that lacks creativity.
I was trying to think of a start to this post that wasn't about me once again being a neglectful blogger (sorry!) or the weather, but with it being more than three weeks since I last posted and with having some major weather recently, this start to the post is only one that didn't end up getting deleted.
So, to the weather, something that has been constantly showing up on my facebook news feed - people posting how much rain they've had, some sharing photos of flooded buildings and streets, constant warnings and updates. While where I am, all that we got was some wonderful rain and strong winds on Saturday (woke up the next morning to some broken off branches and the outside of my house being peppered with leaves). People nearby have had to evacuate their homes due to serious flooding, others were also affected by tornadoes the other day. My heart goes out to everyone, especially those who have been injured and the loved ones of those who have died. The destruction to people's homes and shops is devastating, and I can only imagine how awful it must be.
So for now I'm just hoping to see a little bit better news when I check the updates tomorrow.
And for something a little more cheerful, here's an un-edited photo I took this afternoon of a rainbow at sunset.
