Never More Clear

never more clear
Such is the case with every single snapshot I attempt to catch with this camera, would be the way it would be with any camera I had, was especially noticeable with Boo, but is never more clear than when we have a double rainbow over our house: nature is always a far better artist than any of these images can ever show. Best these might be able to do would be to spark the imagination and illuminate the memory.

This rainbow was the brighest we’ve ever seen here, after one of the most delightfully violent thunderstorms we’ve had in a long time, at least more violent than anything any recent hurricane has thown our direction — in fact, a small twister was sighted around the corner in Pearland.

Out into the Storm

leave a comment »

Kitty always likes having his water bowl filled, drinks from the bathroom sinks whenever he can convince us to turn the faucet on for him, licks the moisture from cold soda cans, and even sneaks a sip from an open toilet if he can get away with it. So this storm is too irresistable to him: the whole world has turned into one huge water bowl!!! This storm is coming in from the northeast, the opposite of our typical weather patterns, so we get a little puddle in the foyer during the brief minute that I open the front door for this video. Kitty doesn’t mind the rain at all, venturing out on the porch to watch.
