More Spring Weather

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Alexandria EgyptFriday was even warmer than Thursday. It hit 69F/20.5C degrees downtown Lansing at about 4:30pm today. Most of the time we had clouds and some of the time we had rain, but the rain was gone more than here.

Before the sun went all the way down, maybe around 6pm, we had the oddest weather. It was sunny but we had thunder and pouring rain with tiny hail in it. I looked out the back door and peering west we had shadows of the trees but the hail was bouncing into the entryway as I peeked out!

The hail did not last long. I looked to see if we had a rainbow. From our porch I could not see one where it should have been. Brian said he saw one when he was running errands. Aaaah, spring!

I’m extremely busy doing paperwork for taxes in between teaching and taking classes. I did take a photo of a huge pile of snow in a parking lot, doing its last gasp. I also got a photo of the sun with hail. I have not downloaded the photos yet so I don’t know how they came out.

I think we’ll be “Photos Lite” at ColorJoy weblog until the taxes are finally ready to go. My business is significantly cash-based. With many smallish transactions (for example, selling one pattern), the amount of data entry is fairly extreme for a one-person business. I don’t mind data entry much (I did it 40 hours a week for 4 years back in the 80’s) but it just plain takes time.

Anyway, for now I’ll give you another recycled photo from my trip to Africa (where we only saw rain two days in five weeks over the holiday season). This photo was taken in Alexandria, Egypt, I believe on December 24, 2004. It rained all morning but cleared up later. We walked around with pants soaked from puddles, not so fun, but the photos came out with such amazing color!
