FOWC with Fandango: Prevalent

Today the weather played a large part in my life. I was visiting Mr. Swiss at his Golden Oldie home. It was not a friendly day with a cold strong wind although now and again the sun did poke through. It was rain and no rain, so i risked the journey. Whilst I was visiting I realised that things were looking quite dark outside and decided it was time to go home. As soon as I mounted my scooter to leave the heavens opened and the hailstones began to tumble down, whilst I was on my way. To intensify the situation, there was thunder and lightening. Thank goodness it is only a five minute journey, but I was naturally soaked when I arrived home. After changing into some dry clothes I had to dry out my scooter.

It was a cloud burst, but whilst I was at home I noticed that there was a repeat performance – see my photo. Those hailstones can hurt when they fall.

RDP Sunday: Muskrat

We rarely see a rat here: perhaps in Winter if we have heavy snow, but they are usually on their last legs. All I can offer is this mouse that our neighbour’s cat caught and decided it was good entertainment. We do have rats down at the river, but I rarely see them. The Swiss lakes have quite a few. They usually live in between the stones at the edge of the lake. Actually I have never heard of a muskrat.
