Reflected Sky

We get so little rain here in S. CA, it feels like a treat to have these standing puddles after our recent storm! Not to mention we've been treated to some great skies! This is my granddaughter standing near a flooded baseball diamond at our local park.
According to the Orange County Register, we need 11 trillion gallons of water to get out of our current drought!!  I'm not holding my breath.


Linking with Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from around the world!

  5. Nice shot.. We in Oklahoma seem to be coming out of a prolonged drought here. It takes a while to get in one and it takes time to get back out also.

  21. When I heard we needed 11 trillion gallons I wondered how they figured that out. Anyway up here north of the Bay, this morning we just got one trillion gallons so only ten more to go. I like those first two shots the best.

  27. You know, we had a nice rain a couple of times now in the desert. last weekend and then again mid-week this past week. I don't see any more rain in the forecast for the next 10 days, but we can always wish, right? Don't you just LOVE the desert after a rain? I do. Take care and Happy Holidays!

  28. I was reading about your rain, it made for fun photos. We could use some serious snow here.

  30. Eleven trillion? Well I guess I won't say hooray the drought is broken. But every little bit helps. Doesn't it? At least it made some good pictures.

  31. Surely this is a site well worth seeing.

  32. Really nice shots. I'm fascinated by reflections...especially the ones you see in random puddles after the rain..

    ReplyDelete
  33. Very nice pics ... love the reflections. First pic with granddaughter is sweet!

  34. 11 trillion is a rather large number. But I wonder how much rain a thunder storm puts down - not 11 trillion for sure.

    When we have very hot spells here in the summer, we call a change in the winds to come from the south a Cool Change and the temp can drop 15 degrees in as many minutes - its wonderful!

    Hope you have a great Christmas.
