Bright Light At End Of Tunnel

After days (and days and days) of rain, we can see the bright light at the end of the tunnel. Well, at least we caught a quick glimpse.

What did I see?

What did I see?

We are eager for our adventures in water world to shift over to some sunny days. And yesterday, for the briefest of moments, we had a glimpse of what is to come. Yes, the clouds parted, blue sky appeared and the sun shone on Chez Herd. We could actually see our shadows!

What is that bright light in the sky? I might leave my cave!

Yes, we had sunshine. And it lasted for three, maybe four, whole minutes. Then the clouds closed off our view of sunshine and another inch of rain fell.

    We finally woke to a blue sky and sunshine here in SW Florida! Let’s hope the sun is making its way to you in NC!

    I totally understand. We also have had so much rain-fog-drizzle etc and NO sun except for a few TEASES here too!! Here’s hoping the sun will shine through for all of us very soon!
