Nature Study This Month :: Sun and Storms

While the rest of the country experienced the polar vortex, we have had some decent winter storms off and on for the past couple weeks.

We took advantage of a break in the rain to take a nice walk at one of our county parks. Moody skies and lush hills describes our typical February landscape.

The most wonderful thing about this sun-and-storms weather has been the rainbows! We don't get sunshowers here that often, and I feel like I've seen more rainbows (and double rainbows!) this year than any other winter.

And speaking of unexpected sights: we even got some snow on the hills just above our town!

Later this week, I'll be at CM West :: Retreat at Old San Juan. The weather has brightened just in time: the forecast is chilly with sunny skies. Looking forward to wildflower hunting and refreshing wintertime walks in the foothills with friends.
