Yes, we've been under the wrath of storm Zeta for the last couple days dumping torrents of rain with that ominous howling sound I can't stand. Sounds like derisive laughter. Just for kicks it decided to snow dump on us, ugghh! Yes, need lots of hot chocolate. I hope this isn't a precursor of what to expect this winter. I just seeded a new lawn, hope it's not ruined. lol life goes on! Good times!

That's beautiful Klahanie, loving the contrasting colours. The tail end of your storm Zeta heading our way for Sunday Bathgate after another, storm Aiden, hits us today.

Thank you. This storm is a cold one with snow sleet and torrential rain for days. Hot Chocolate for sure-and hot apple pie for good measure.
