Raindrops keep fallin on my head!







I know many places in other countries are still waiting for the much needed rain. We all know that plants become very happy and easily show that happiness after a good rain. Here in our country, we are at the middle of our rainy season. Because of the now very famous "climate change", we are getting so much of it that maybe some volume supposed to be yours are dropped here. That caused many towns and cities here to be flooded for the first time, and those low lying areas getting worse. Authorities said that some areas might dry still after about a month, and that might cause aggravated problems. 

Donations like clothes, medicines, blankets, bottled water, canned goods, rice and others are being brought to evacuation centers and places still with deep waters.  And we just pray! Please pray for us too.

Post Script: 

I placed this in the comment section after many put their comments, but i decided to transfer it here so next readers will see this also.

Hello everyone, this is just to inform you that my family and I, as well as our farm are not affected by the floods. We and our plants are very happy with our rains, although we feel for those who are affected. I hope people and countries who really made Mother Nature so angry, will be sensitized enough to make some changes in life standards and make fast mitigating measures. Fossil fuel use, gas emissions, mining, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), deforestation are mainly the causes, and we are now reaping the consequences!

  2. You caught both the beauty of the rain and the devastation it can cause. We've had more than our usual amount of rain this autumn too (even floods in some towns) but not quite as bad as yours.

  3. Love the raindrops on the plants. We have been having a lot of rain here in the North Eastern part of the U.S.A

  4. Oh dear! The little jewel drops are beautiful but lots of those beauties may cause flood and become disastrous... just like almost everything else...

  5. Hi!
    Lovely rain drops! But not so lovely when they come in bunches. Have a great day!

  6. Oh my....I can't imagine the mosquito problems that will cause. Maybe we can ship some of it to my sister state of Texas.

  8. Love your photographs and understand all your feelings. It is hard for mother nature to keep us all happy with our usual climates and unpredictable weather. Great to see the beauty there though:~)

  9. Oh dear Andrea, we cry for it and then hate when it falls too much. I hope you all get some relief with some sunny days to dry out. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  13. Our province was directly hit by two successive typhoons in just 5 days. They brought damage to our farm but nothing that can't be fixed. My prayer and sympathy goes to those in low-lying areas who are still flooded and are suffering from sickness and property losses.

  14. Relatives of mine in New York had their house completely destroyed by flooding a few weeks ago. Thankfully they evacuated just in time so that no one was hurt. It is sad to see the devastation that too much rain causes, while in other parts people go without.

  15. I love the look of water droplets on plants. Rain is wonderful, until it becomes too much to handle and causes floods.

  16. I was caught in the rain last weekend. It was rather nice to walk with an umbrella in the night. The air was really cool ;-)

  17. This has been such a year of extremes weather wise everywhere it seems. Too bad it just cannot even out into areas that need it. Stay safe and prayers are going up.

  18. Pretty images of the rain, Andrea. Too bad too much of it though. We too have been having more rain than usual. It really is peculiar how the weather seems so different worldwide.

  19. Your title is my favourite song. When I was a kid, rain was nice - after the rain, my neighbourhood kids will play football, some even swim in the puddles of water in the football fields. I catch fishes that overflow from a pond into a drain! Now when it rains, I worry about the floods it will cause. The raindrops in your photos look like crystal beads. I also like the picture of the pouring rain which I tried to capture many times but fail. Glad you and family are not affected by the rain.

  20. Hopefully the rain eases up soon! If that picture is any indication, it's really coming down hard. Best wishes to everyone in the affected areas.

  23. Your photos are of the rain are very beautiful, I think. But I understand that enough is enough and that too much causes much damage. I wish that my own government would be more sensitive to climate change. Unfortunately greed is paramount.

  24. Andrea, we are pleased to know that all is well with you and your family.

    We too have our rainy season beginning. Interesting that we went from winter to spring, a few weeks of summer and now the winter rains; somehow we missed having fall. ;)

  25. wow, the raindrops on the plants look like sparkling diamonds. hope the rainy season will stop soon.

  26. That last picture sure illustrates your point about all the rain. Best wishes for it to stop soon and no more flooding!

  27. Glad that your area is not affected, but will pray for the areas that are.
