Yee-Haw! Blah Blah Days!

Yee-Haw! Blah blah days of gray have descended once again on us in Juniper Canyon.


Almost every winter we have a couple of weeks of blahsay gray skies with fog that drifts in and drifts out.


“Oh Mr. Sun where are you…Hello Blue Sky? Where have the two of you gone?” I bet they hooked up and went to Hawaii…I don’t blame them but “Hey…come back puhlease!”


And with dingy gray skies devoid of character or shadows, what do you take pictures of?


Maybe God made foggy gray days for us to know that we will go through gray times in life but blue skies are coming…hang on and trust…as the gray will disappear!


And then…the sun shines for a few hours…Halleluaia! I LOVE seeing blue instead of gray!


WB heard me whimpering about no blue skies, so he gave me something to do that I enjoy:)


WB restores customer vehicles and he just finished this 1949 Chevrolet one ton pick up…the customer’s father purchased the pick up in 1949. Note: It is very rare as it is a one ton!


A photo shoot was just what I needed, as on gray days, photos pop and photo shoots are awesome as the camera captures the shadows, the depth, the funky fun shots, with no glare, and no fade out of color etc.


We need rain in the Pacific Northwest…we need it bad. We are way below what is the normal crop year moisture…the mountains do not have their usual snow pack and next summer will be very dry…I’m praying for good rains, nice gentle rains and some occasional snow here with a good snow pack in the mountains!


Summer is coming sooner than we think with beautiful skies and flowers galore that are pretty in pink…hopefully with gentle spring rains and epic summer storms! Hang on tight as soon it will be a warm summer night full of country delight!


Life Is Good! In Fact It Rocks! 8 Years Strong!!!

How often do you capture a photo of a yellow striped kitty named Morris walking across the back of our “Cat” and he is right above Caterpillar? Perfecto! Morris is a very cool cat!!!


Have a warm comfy night wherever you are and a Totally Terrific Thursday!

    It’s been gray here too. We were under an inversion for about a week or so. But those days make us really appreciate the many beautiful days we have.

    I thought I read this morning that the south is going to be hit by storms and snow… am I wrong? Don’t worry your blue skies, sunshine and green is here by us, it says it will return to you when the time is right… lol

      We are in the Western US. Actually Eastern Oregon, about 220 miles from Portland, OR. Portland is on the wet side of Oregon and we are on the dry side of Oregon…usually we have lots of snow during winter and good fall and spring rains…but the last few years it has not been good for us and this winter so far has been cold but no moisture. Enjoy our blue skies and sunshine:):):)

    We have a lot of grey days here because we live near the ocean. I take a lot of cloud pictures, but I admit when we have good weather, I grab the camera and try to take a lot of pictures. Because who knows when the weather will clear? We’ve had entire summers where the sun never shone! Depressing!

      We are so blessed to have beautiful skies most of the year…we all whine a lot when we have gray foggy days for weeks at a time…the humidity makes it colder and the gray weighs on you…this afternoon we had blue skies for a few minutes and tonight the wind is blowing so I am hoping tomorrow will be a blue sky day! Living close to the ocean would make all your days ok:):):) I love the ocean:)
