With the flooding all along the Mississippi corridor and yesterday's spillway flooding of low-lying lands in southern Louisiana, done in an effort to save Baton Rouge and New Orleans - non-stop rain is not a lot to complain about. But it has caused local flash flooding and no one is in a good mood.

In Cleveland, we've had ONE sunny day in May. ONE. Let's all count together ONE.... ah... start over. ONE. Yes, ONE sunny day in May. Supposedly, there were 8 partly cloudy days and the rest of May was cloudy. Except for the ONE sunny day, we've had rain - either all day or off and on during the other non-sunny days.

Cleveland has a new definition of PARTLY CLOUDY. That means you spent part of the day INDOORS. If you want MOSTLY CLOUDY, you spend most of your day outside. And CLOUDY is a day at the park and the frozen beach.
On the ONE sunny day we had in May, I was able to take a few shots of what Spring is supposed to look like. Ah... visions of Spring. Flowers. Blooming trees. Weeds in the lawn.

Regardless of the gloom, I managed to take a few shots on the ONE SUNNY DAY IN MAY. The pictures are from my street and my sister's flower beds. I hope you enjoy them. I tried to take more pictures today, but the PARTLY CLOUDY situation kept me inside and my camera does not have X-ray capabilities.
It's this kind of weather that makes me really miss Las Vegas. There, we'd transition from a chilly period known as Winter. For a couple weeks, the weather would warm up and be exceedingly pleasant, usually in the 80's. That was Spring. After the few weeks of Spring, the temperature would shoot over 100 degrees and it would stay that way for the next four months. That was called Summer.
|Cleveland sky. See the power lines. Gotta love it.|
Here, the monotony drones one. Rain, rain, leaves me in pain. Another day of rain and I'll go insane. Ran, rain, no one to blame, except me for moving to this town of rain.
Spring will arrive in a few more weeks. Just in time to start preparing for Fall. You have to love the weather in this part of the country. So enjoy the visions and illusions of Spring time in the Midwest and East.
