  1. I sent our cherished rescue mutt Ellie out into our rainy night here last night, Beth, and toweled her off when she came back in from the backyard. I wonder if she pictured it anything like the great archive photo you discovered from U of M above.

      • Yes, lots of rainy nights..and days..but really only in the winter and springs months. That’s why we’re the Evergreen state. ☺️ We have perfect beautiful summer and fall weather. Last year we had almost 4 months of dry weather.
        In spite of all the rain we get, thunderstorms are very rare..so I really miss those good old fashioned Michigan thunderstorms!
        Sorry for going down a rabbit hole here.
