It is late night or early morning?

It started thundering and lightning and then monsoon pouring tonight late night or maybe super early this morning. When I got up to look outside, the streetlight across the street from our house was out, and that made our street pitch black. Until the lightning hit. And it would go white for a split second before being light as day for a second and then back to pitch black…

I probably stood there and watched it for a good five minutes. And the storm was so close. You’d see the lightning flash and a second or two later, there’d be a huge thunder boom. As soon as the storm started to blow over, our street light came back on…

I think everyone was wide away after this storm. πŸ˜€β›ˆοΈβ€οΈ

Another rainy evening.

Checking in on the WyzeCams. It’s another rainy evening on our street in Northside…

We’ve had a lot of rainy days lately. Β πŸ˜€πŸ“·β˜”οΈβ€οΈ

Thunderstorms.

It was another grey and rainy day in Cincinnati. But there were some really pretty rain clouds hanging out over downtown…

And there were pretty big rain clouds over Northside too…

There was this chair up atop the hill at the end of our street…

Just hanging out. πŸ˜€β˜οΈβ€οΈ

A grey day at Grey.

It was a rainy and grey day at Grey…Β 

But there was a little bit of sunshine waiting in one of Grey’s refrigerators…

It’s a DQ ice cream cake! We must be celebrating June birthdays soon! πŸ˜€β˜‚οΈπŸŽ‚πŸ¦β€οΈ

UPDATE: We had DQ ice cream cake on Friday!

Also, DQ ice cream cake is so good!

Some storm clouds rolled through downtown this morning…

And holy geez, did it get dark outside…

Yikes. πŸ˜€β˜‚οΈβ€οΈ

And it was a rainy morning.

Yesterday’s rainy evening carried over into this morning. It looked really threatening when we were taking the dogs out on their morning walk before work…

On our way downtown, it didn’t look any better…

And by the time I got upstairs to work, it was raining again…

But the good news is, I made myself this breakfast sammich croissant at work…

It was delicious. And later, there was strawberry birthday cheesecake at work…

So it’s all good.Β πŸ˜€β˜οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸ₯β€οΈ

Beautiful day, rainy evening.

It had been pretty sunny all day until it was just about time to go home. Then it got all grey and overcast and started to rain…

Bleh. πŸ˜€β˜οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

It was another rainy evening in Northside. Sometimes when it rains, the colors become so vivid. Tonight was one of those nights. It was really beautiful…

The monsoon match.

Tonight, FC Cincinnati played host to Philadelphia Union in what will forever be known in my mind and always referred to as the FC|C Monsoon Match…

We headed down to where we normally stand only to find a lot of people had pretty much the same exact idea…

I think I spent as much time watching the rain fall as I spent watching the soccer…

We decided to break camp just before half time and watch the second half from the comfort of St. Clair. Any place inside of Nippert Stadium with an overhang was jam-packed full of people…

When FC Cincinnati went down 2-0, we decided to pack it in completely, get an Uber and head for home…

FC Cincinnati ended up losing the monsoon match 2-0. πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ
