Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Another rainy one


I don’t know what it’s been like where you are, but around here it’s been grey and rainy most days. Seems like we haven’t seen much sun in weeks.

I guess there are pretty things even in the rain.

We had an early winter, early snow, early cold temperatures and now, though it’s warmer, it just rains and rains.

There won’t be snow for Christmas, but that’s OK with me. I’d just like to see some sun.

It’s hard to remember when you’re walking the dog around puddles in the street, hood up to keep the rain off your glasses that just a day before we had walked in her park with beautiful skies overhead.

Katie’s park, yesterday afternoon.

How soon I forget!

The late afternoon light made the grass glow.

So I will endure this, another rainy day, because who knows…tomorrow could be filled with sun!

Evening shadows creep across the park as we said goodbye.

We hope each of you enjoy a beautiful day today, rain or sun.

Hoping for sun tomorrow.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. We’ve had that same kind of weather here. Parts of me would prefer to shovel rather than this gray drippy mess!


  2. I love how sunlight makes dead winter grasses glow.

    Extremely rainy here. We’ve had storm system after storm system moving through since last week. Very windy today. It’s eased up for a bit right now, but was gusting 30 – 40 mph an hour ago. Temps have been in the high 40s to low 50s, so no sign of snow.


  3. It’s 60 degrees here in NJ and pouring like crazy! I am thankful it is not snow, as it is December and that would make more sense! The sun will reappear eventually I figure 🙂


    • Pouring rain would be a lot of snow! Yes, I figure it will show up eventually too….maybe Christmas Day will be pretty. I worry for all the people trying to travel in this, I’m afraid there will be some very disappointed families as people are stuck in airports everywhere. I used to tell my mom that it was so hard to travel at Christmas, not just the crowds but the weather being uncertain. I told her much better to get together in the summer…but still….Christmas is such a family time it’s hard to be apart.


  4. We got a little snow early this morning, the ground is white again and things look all fresh and pretty but no sun 😦


  5. It’s been unseasonably warm up our way, too, but we still have white on the ground. They are predicting heavy snow later this week. I don’t like traveling at Christmas, either.
