January 8th, 2016 – Our Backyard

unusal-early-january-in-central-illinois_wm

This was our backyard, during the day, on January 8th, 2016.  It snowed that night.  I wonder what it will look like on January 8th, 2017.

Central Illinois’ first snow could come as early as Sunday, December 5th.

Frosty Backyard

A couple weeks ago we had a frost that lightly painted the back yard.  As you can see the sun was coming up so it did not last long.

My wife, Jean, grooming our Feral Cat, Muffin

Jean grooms Muffin when she can.  Sometimes Muffin walks or scurries away, but today she just plopped down and enjoyed the attention.  She’ll roll over, stretch out, or even lie on her side.  She often moves forward as she’s being groomed but always close to the ground.  She had a burr in her tail here and didn’t mind having it removed at all.  Jean didn’t know I was taking the picture but she’s a good sport and was OK with me posting this.  Muffin couldn’t have cared less.

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow_edited-1

I’m trying this upload again.  Anyway, yesterday this this double rainbow appeared after a number lightning strikes and thunder, but very lite rain.

Sorry a few of you actually got the bad post…it had my right hand menu down the center of the image instead of where it belongs.
