through the drops

storm


gazing through the blinds past the raindrop streaked window
my street swelled to a rushing river down a concrete hill
grasping at any hope amid tear filled eyes
the gracious web fluttered in the wind
yet still holding on ... as will I

oak web


we received eight inches of rain in a matter of hours from Tropical storm Hermine

With that much rain you were fortunate to have just one leak ... glad you could stay safe and dry inside.

I'm glad you are all safe. Our son and his family missed the storm as they are up here visiting. I love the web photos. It's amazing how they stand up through all kinds of weather.

Wow, glad you are all safe and that you made lemonade (these beautiful photos) out of lemons (the storm).

Oh my, Hermine invaded?! Those are scary times...I remember being in a tropical storm in Florida one September and having the water slip in under the cinderblock walls.
Glad you hung on and found these beautiful pictures.
Have a great weekend, ELK.

Spiderwebs - especially bedecked in diamonds, are always extraordinary. Very pleased to hear that you safe and sound - if somewhat damp around the edges...

e.o.w. said...

I'm glad you're safe.
And I love that cob-web!
In PA, we've had a season of drought- less than an inch over the past 2 months! Not a great year to start a small organic farm without irrigation! I look forward to catching up as the season nears its end...

Oliag said...

So glad you escpaed unharmed from the storm...and those photos are divine!

We were very fortunate in our neck of the woods to have escaped from Hurricane Earl...

Your raindrops are beautiful here as they show off the spiderweb and leaves. Like a gazing ball you see the world in such a special light. roxanne

Kellee said...

I'm so glad you are safe. Wish we could have taken some of that rain off of your hands. We could have used a little in these parts.

mansuetude said...

these are amazing images, shows the tiniest as part of the whole weave.

i love water but hope it stays where it belongs--so sorry you got water in your house! We were blessed Hurricaine Earl went out softly...

kelly@thebluemuse said...

Oh dear, I hope that you are high and dry now and that no permanent damage was done. It is always such a mess to clean up after something like that.

Your photos are beautiful though, that last one is breathtaking.

Your beauty always shines through.
