The wild weather continues here in the PNW, which should be no surprise to any of those who have lived here for a while. Last week, for about five days straight, we had so much hail that it looked like snow piled high. The roads were crummy, the plants were covered in it, and it seemed that everything in nature took a little siesta. But last night, the thunderstorms boomed and the clouds roared by faster than driving that Beemer on the autobahn. The clouds, rain, and bit of clear sunshine resulted in a most beautiful double rainbow.
The eagle’s head was easily visible with the backdrop of dark clouds.

It seems that the storm cleared the air and made way for everything to return anew. This morning the robins were singing just as day broke, the hummingbirds are draining the feeders as fast as I can refill them, and the cormorants have returned en masse to fish in the newly stocked lake.
Yes, spring really is here—hooray!
