A couple of years ago I went out to my Uncle’s place in the country to photograph the full moon coming up over the corn fields.
To get to his house I have to drive down a very long, usually dry and dusty road. It’s one of those old gravel roads. The kind where you better roll up the windows and turn off the vents or the car will fill up with dust and you might be coughing by the time you get there.
As luck would have it, the weather turned and it proceeded to rain for 2 days straight. I’ve never seen it rain that much in a 2 day period. The normally dry and dusty road was starting to wash out in spots.
Generally, the house rules are that the dog is allowed inside but the cats are not. While waiting for the skies to clear up, which it did not until after I left, I couldn’t help taking a picture of this little cat hoping for a break from the cool rain.
It sure seems to speak volumes. It might make a cute greeting card!
