Rain, Rain and The Week That Was–February 17, 2012

For most of the past year Houston (all of Texas?) has been in a super ultra severe draught. That’s bad, of course, for the farmers and the trees and threat of wildfires but I had gotten pretty used to seeing the bright sunshine every day. Now we’re in for a few days of rain and I’m totally bummed! Plus I prefer to take pictures in the bright natural light so it’s slowing up a DIY. Come on sunshine! I hope it’s sunny wherever you are this weekend. What’s the best thing you saw this week? Here are some of my favorites.
