I almost feel like it's false advertising to put up beautiful pictures of our area.
Yes, it's gorgeous here. Mountains, flowers, water, green, trees... Yup.
When you can see them.
But you need to realize something. It rains here about 9 months out of the year.
I am not joking.
So we go a little nuts when the weather is good. Because usually it's more like this...
This is the view out the boys' bedroom window. You should be seeing another couple layers of hills around the lake, but they're covered by the low clouds. And the blurriness? Not my fault (this time), it's the rain streaming down the window. (Last fall.)
And here you see the parking lot where one of the boys has soccer practice.
And - yes - they practice when it's like this.
And I've sat through games in even worse weather.
So don't be too jealous, okay?!
