Stormy Weather

Storm clouds on the march! These distant gray clouds lead to a half inch of rain on Sunday late afternoon. The thunderstorm just sat over us and kept reforming and reforming. It was wonderful! Not your typical Colorado afternoon thunderstorm which usually come and goes in a hurry. This one stuck around for hours. eBay opens "her" closet  (the closet where the hot water heater and furnace are housed) and hides. She is very smart. It's a bi-fold door and she sticks her paw right where the door folds and works it until she opens it. Sometimes she does this just for fun, sometimes it's just her safe place at the cabin. She's been known to do this and hide when we get ready to go back to New Jersey and gets on the side of the furnace. We have to get the broom to push her out. That is not fun.

We also had rain again on Monday morning, but not as much as the day before. Still, not typical weather.

Although it did clear up Monday evening for the "cowboy cookout" that our neighbor's invited us too. The weather was perfect. Here I am embracing my inner cowgirl while petting black barn kitty Fluffy, who is the most unshy cat I have ever seen. Thank you mom-in-law Lynn for the gift of the cowboy hat!

Overnight we had more rain and this morning a big black rain cloud dropped rain on Bull Mountain while giving us the gift of this gorgeous rainbow right out our window. It started to be a double rainbow and if you look really hard you can see them both.

What a way to start a day!


Cats are funny—they really ARE smart creatures. I’m glad to see a picture of you in your soon-to-be native element!

That’s a nice rainbow photo—I can see both bows clearly.
