After the Rain

Lately we've had afternoon thunderstorms EVERY DAY. Hello Florida in August. :) I've always loved the sound of rain. It makes me want to curl up with a book, in a comfy chair.

But with 4 boys, being cooped up inside has its challenges. (Thank goodness for Legos--and Lego Ninjago! LOL) Being stuck inside at the beach is especially cruel. You can see the waves and the sand just outside the window...but you're stuck inside. It's a total wave tease.:)

And then there's this:

See the empty beach?! That's because it was just storming like crazy...

I took this picture last weekend when we were staying at the beach. Isn't is AMAZING? I think the perfect swell sits at the end of this rainbow. :)

Sometimes rain leads to something breathtaking. Something inspiring. Since yesterday we experienced some *slight* plumbing problems at our house, I'm hoping there's a rainbow coming (metaphorically speaking) soon around here. Because usually something good follows a big rain--even if it's inside the house.:)

So what's new with you? Seen any rainbows lately? :)

  1. We're in a drought so it hasn't rained here (NE) hardly at all this summer. Alas, no rainbows. So -- we've made our own rain with sprinklers, garden hose fights, water balloon fights and therefore our own rainbows! Great post. :)
