It's Raining, It's Pouring

I love the fall. I really love it here in Utah. We actually get to see the change of colors, the change of seasons. September's temperatures were almost like summer here. It was 85 on Thursday, down to 79 on Friday and today FINALLY it turns into Autumn. It's been raining all day. I love rain. I find it makes me calmer and ever so happy.

My cute hubby and I decided that since we would be just hanging out today we could easily take a drive and do what we were going to do "on the road". We headed north to Brigham City and up over Sardine Canyon into Logan. I love Cache County. For the most part its still small town and quaint. Plus the landscape is just beautiful. (But I am ever so grateful that I don't live there in the winter! Brrrr..)

Here are a few pictures we were able to take despite the pouring rain.










We had actually thought we could meet my parents in Brigham City for lunch but they were off in Reno. Maybe next time.

We had a great day and we were enlightened and inspired. I love days like these.

I have never been to Utah. You have just convinced me that this is a grevious mistake on my part.

Must. Get. To. Utah.

Someday!

Love the photos. Believe it or not the colors are changing on the trees here in our neigborhood. It is so pretty and reminds me of SLC.
One thing I do miss is the rain...it hardly rains here and if it does it is barely a sprinkle that lasts for five or so minutes.

Hope your doing good. Are you still enjoying your new job?

You sure do live in a purty place! What do all your kitties do when it's raining and they can't go outside? Or are they all House Kitties?

Love the pics! We always get the rain before it gets to you. It was a nice week of weather and today it is really cooling off. Yesterday was in the 70's and today in suppose to be in the 50's so fall is here. I love the rain too! Just not enough to live in Portland!!
Hugs from Boise!
