Fido blowing in the wind in Saturn on the Rio Grande.
We got lots of rain today as promised by the forecast.
A slight break in the weather about 30 minutes after I got all wet carrying groceries from the store to the car and then from the car into the house in the pouring rain. Les choses sont contre nous!

Thanks, Marcella. There were lots of paddlers out on Saturday. I only saw one dog, though. It was a pleasantly warm day.
I understand there are a lot of lakes in Saskatchewan. Do you have a lake on your farm?
Are you near a lake?
I hope you didn’t get any of the bad weather tonight; I’m not sure exactly where you are, but it’s been rough in some places. especially Del Rio and northeast. There’s a photo making the rounds of hail that came through a house roof in Sabinal — much better to have the excitement limited to some rain and a nice wind in the fur!
We only had much needed rain and some wind. Nothing dramatic but the sky. Thanks, shoreacres.
I like the wind-blown doggie. Those clouds are spectacular, Tim. You get some amazing skyscapes in your area.
Thanks, Lavinia. The dog looked like he was having fun.
And the doggie has its own life jacket too.
Responsible dog parents. Thanks, Shey.
That’s a realy dramatic sky Timothy.
Great pictures, Timothy. I love the changing sky.
Thanks, Robbie. The sky changes quickly out here.
Cool shots of the clouds before and after the storm 😉
Fido looks like he’s having fun!
Something you said the other day about Nature being obstinate! 😂🤣
Quite rewarding though!!!
Nature has wild mood swings. Thanks, Marina.
I suppose she entitled to! 😉🤣
…she’s! Autocorrect was feeling hungry! 😂🤣
Buona giornata 🙂
This looks like great fun! It reminds me of living in Northern Manitoba where we were surrounded by lakes. Sitting in a canoe in the middle of a lake was exhilarating. Total freedom, until it started to rain hard and we had to scurry back to the show. A great photo of Fido. Your skies go on forever!
I meant “shore”. Yikes! Actually it was quite a show to see us bedraggled.
I get those types of errors all the time.
Thanks, Rebecca. When I was a teenager, a friend and I would canoe from Cochiti dam to Corrales, about 40 miles, every summer when the Rio Grande was running high.
That must has been amazing. 40 miles!!! WOW!
It took us 12 to 16 hours depending on how fast the river was running.
I don’t think I have seen a dog in a life-vest before. Your skies are quite something. I’m assuming you were happy to trade getting all wet for your long awaited rain.
Oh yeah. Getting wet was no problem. Although a little cool. People often put life-vests on their dogs. I’m not sure the dogs need them. Thanks, Susan.
Wowsers! That sky is ridiculous!
Thanks, Dale. True.
Those skies are awesome! I wonder if you ever see people stopping and camping overnight along the river?
Camping is not allowed through our section of river and bosque. Thanks, Tiffany.
What a sky! Wow
Wonderful photos! Love the little boat with the doggie enjoying himself.
Timothy, I had to say good bye To my sweet little Tide. He’s been ill for awhile but we’ve been hanging on making him comfortable. Miss him terribly.
Sending lots of ear rubs to those kitties.
Thanks, Holly. I am so sorry to hear about Tide. I know how hard it is to lose our faithful friends. Especially after caring for them and make them as comfortable as we can until the end. I still miss all our sweet kitties we have lost and I think about them every day.
I know just what you mean. I had to pack all his little things away to not be constantly reminded and literally grieve that little dog. 14 years is a long time. My husband was in denial, but the vet said Tides heart was failing and he was suffering and I couldn’t have that. Take care my friend.
They are like our children. I can understand your husband being in deniel, but sometimes you have to let go.
Yes, I understand that. It’s not easy. 🌹
Gorgeous skies!! Life jackets are a good idea even for the most expert swimmers in case of injury, or like say, the freezing waters of the Great Lakes!
Especially for freezing waters. Even the knee deep water in the Rio Grande can be deadly. Thanks, Mary Jo.
Looks like super dog……under some stormy skies….
Super dog is a good description. Thanks, Ruelha.
The cottonwoods are filling in beautifully!
Will they get cottons this year?
The doggy is adorable!
Currently there are lots of tatones. I don’t think they will freeze so there is probably lots of cotton on the horizon. Thanks, Resa.
I’ll need 1 or 2 gorgeous close ups for my Art Gown post.
Putting in 1 hour a day, every day. I’ve refurbished the crinoline, and done a new cover. There’s a few adjustments to go, then I will drape the bodice. I’m taking more pics along the way, than I usually do.
I’m into the ABC’s on this one!
Loving these skies Tim 🙂
