Soggy in the South

This is a shot of our back yard today. For the first time in years it is raining on Independence Day here in central Arkansas, USA. We have plans to attend a back yard barbecue this evening followed by fireworks. Hopefully this rain will end it's wrath very soon and we can do just that. In the mean time we're curled up on the couch watching television. I hope that my fellow Americans are enjoying their day and staying dry!

Oh, dear! That doesn't look festive at all. I hope it clears up for you. On the other hand, I rather enjoy rainy days watching movies.

Happy Independence Day, Tisha!

Happy 4th. It is rainy here today as well in Connecticut. We are heading for a movie instead of BBQ and Fireworks. Drier.

Happy 4th of July to you and your crew. You may send that rain over to Mississippi. We are so very dry. My poor garden is thirsty!!!

Take care. :o)

It's raining here in Connecticut, too, and the forecast calls for it to do so all weekend. The big fireworks show is scheduled for tomorrow night at 9:30 so I'm hoping it clears up at least for that but I don't know ... New England hasn't had the best weather this year so far.

Hope you and the family had a fantastic 4th no matter what you ended up doing!

Aw, what a bummer! Maybe the kids would enjoy splashing around outside.

That's what it looked like here today, too. We spent a lot of time curled up watching TV, too! The rain stopped for tonight, but we didn't feel like fighting the mud and mosquitoes to watch fireworks.

Happy 4th anyway!

We had overcast yesterday and today. We didn't see the fireworks from where we were, although we did hear them.

Luckily it didn't rain on our bbq today, although we were prepared to take it indoors if we needed to.
