Sunrise, Shadows, And A Small Chance of Rain With Earthquakes

As I headed to work, I saw beautiful skies and hoped they held some rain for us.  Our ground is dry, the gravel roads are dusty, and the pastures are crying out for a drink.
As the fog was burned away with the rising sun, I knew a small chance was all we had.  I enjoyed the beauty of the sunrise while I drove and tried to remember the feel of rain.

Our pear tree is blooming for the second time this year.  My sister, Beverly mentioned, she had read that when things bloomed out of season, it indicated an earthquake was coming!  I scoffed.

The ninth, tenth and the eleventh, Arkansas had three earthquakes. Some people felt it here, others did not.  The 9th was 3, the 10th was 3 and the 11th was 3.6.  May be something to blooming out of season after all.

I like the image of the sunrise through the fog.
Sorry I'm behind with comments, my son is here for a few days.

Hope you get some rain soon. Not too much or too little, just enough. Your photos gave me such a calm, peaceful feeling..wait, isn't that a song? LOL

We need rain too. Everything is suffering. It's been 6 weeks I think they said since we had any.

A couple of years ago, after the big hurricane hit, the bradford pear trees bloomed out of season, in the fall. From shock. So many branches lost they were trying to jump start reproduction I guess.

Didn't realize that you had earthquakes ... are they common there this time of year?

Freaky about out-of-season blooms and earthquakes. I hope those three were it and no more come around to shake things up.

I'd never heard that about blooming out of season but it makes sense to me. But then what do I know.
Love reading your posts and esp love your photos.

Blessings. Barb

I too had heard the out of season blooming thing foretells an earthquake. Lots of iris's (flags) blooming here out of season as is my magnolia tree, but then we have earthquakes all the time here....little ones but we are on a considerable fault....someday but I shan't think about that.
When we moved to San Francisco...now I thought about it the whole time we lived there but here, not so much.
I hope ya'll get rain soon.

Earthquakes, eh? Familiar territory for us here in southern Californa, but the flowering tree was trippy. Haven't heard that one before, but why not? There's a lot more going on in the world than most of us half asleep humans realise.

Judy said...

I didn't even hear about your earthquakes...must have missed that on the news...

Pat said...

By golly that sister of yours knows what she's talking about! You should be getting rain soon if that radar is correct!

Hope you don't get any more earthquakes, but that you do get some rain!

Hello my friend! I heard on the news that Oklahoma had an earthquake of an even larger magnitude. Did you hear about that?? Goodness. It's usually California that is getting those! None lately..but I am always on guard! :)
The activity in the house is still going on but it is barely noticible.
They are SCARY aren't they? Those earthquakes.

Hugs,
Mona

There's been much talk about earthquakes here in Washington State because of the San Andreas Fault line in California. And we recently.
