The view from my perch on the mountain

Rain and mist

Much needed rain is falling and the cloud deck is hanging close to the ground. The flat light was just right for a few monochrome shots.

The high winds we’ve had the past couple of weeks have really done a job on the older, disused buildings in the area. Many have sections of metal roof peeled back while others have collapsed.

I can’t help but wonder what became of the workers at the feed mill when it was shut down and abandoned. I’ll have to ask Fish hook if he knows because it shut it’s doors long before we moved here.

Rain or shine, life goes on in the natural world. Even though it was so wet that the “beards” on these two wild turkey gobblers were plastered to their chests they were on the prowl for food as well as hens. mating season is just about to get under way and they’ll be rounding up their harems soon.

    Hi, Chip: Bet you thought I’d dropped off the edge of the map! lol! no, just have a grandbaby in the house that takes up eighty percent of my time, that’s all! Man, have I forgotten more than I ever knew regarding babies, but am dusting of the brain and learning all over again! Life is a joy and so’s my wee Tinkerbell! Been reading your posts as they’ve come in…you’ve had quite a time, especially getting yet another Elmo! I miss all my friends…thought I’d get some blogging done as Amanda took Ava down to her mother’s for a week long visit…all I did was SLEEP…and get some of those horridly backed up chores done…and not as many of them done as I would have liked…miss you…hope to be blogging soon…love Katie.
