Ruby Rooftops in the Rain

It's raining! After a couple of official drought years here in Israel, we're pretty excited. In the last two days, it's already rained enough for more than an average October and November combined! Here's a shot of our wet neighborhood, through a rainy window:

Woo hoo! (Did I menion that we're excited?)

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, check out the cool warp effect that the wet window has on the view in some places - fun! I might start playing with this, if I have a chance...

Don't forget: On Tuesdays, just post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED and then link to this blog. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

South Texas is in a drought too. It's always a welcome part to have drenching rains, isn't it!!?!!

When heaven opens
and rain pours down, rejoicing
is heard in the streets.

Cookie - I agree, that is funny! I know a lot of people in North America who are annoyed about how much it's been raining, and here we've been so dry :)

BLOGitse - thanks for coming, it's always nice to see you!

Hootin' Anni - definitely!

luna miranda - send some of it over here!

MMT - thanks, that's lovely!

Hi, Toby, thanks for posting for Ruby Tuesday! I'm glad you're so happy about rain. Is the drought now over? Love the RED roofs! :)

Auntie E - thanks, and thanks for coming by!

maryt/theteach - we'll have to wait until the end of winter for the final verdict, but it's looking good so far!
