Grey Clouds Are Here to Stay

Okay, maybe a slight exaggeration. It's just that these clouds do not want to move on, they're ruining Mexico's coast, drowning El Paso, and over all causing great sadness in my life. The first 2 or 3 days everyone was saying, "WOW! Rain we love you!", now we're all saying, "OK WTF?!". We are so blue, I'm not kidding everyone in the department today was either having a bad day or feeling down in the dumps. We had a storm on Wednesday that was harsh! It rained so hard that we couldn't see across the street. This is an image from that day. I had to document the day because no one would believe that TX has days like this, at least not on the South Plains.
This week has been pretty blah due to the weather, haven't felt too productive due to the weather. Recently celebrated my Abuelita's birthday and it was awesome; being at her house and just being with my loved ones was regenerative. I hadn't been home in quite some time, it was nice to be with people that you love especially in a place that represents so much. My childhood was lived there in that house, I have lived and learned much at my grandmother's home. That is a true home. I miss her just writing about this, hopefully I'll be spending a lot more time there in the future. I had forgotten why I tried to spend every single weekend and vacation day at that house. It was fun, safe, and loving, providing the perfect environment for a child. Oh and it wasn't grey skies nor was it cold - it was perfect. Missing the sunny skies of El Paso.

Alright it was a little cloudy.

  1. Our Spring and Summer here started like that. Made for a happy garden tho.
    Always loved going to my grandparents house in the NC mountains. They lived on a lake and Grandmother always took us fishing or we would just paddle around in the john boat.

    1. I would have loved this rain at the beginning of the summer not the close. NC sounds like fun :)

  3. I hope your sunny skies have returned. We have been experiencing nice weather for a change. Happy Birthday to your grandmother. I also have such fond memories of being at my grandparents house - I actually have more childhood memories there than anywhere else. Hopefully you can spend some more time there.

    1. Well we briefly had blue skies and then we went into a super storm! Flash floods here, flash floods there, flash floods everywhere! However next week should be bluer skies and a little chillier.

      Yeah my grandparents house was my mom's mini-vacation :)
