Wet Spring Days - Finally

Back on April 20th, I mentioned that since March 1st we had received 1.68 inches of rain compared to 5.24 inches in a normal year. In the 12 days since then, we've received 3.37 inches of rain, including a little over a half inch yesterday.

While precipitation is still below what is expected for the season, things are starting a look more normal. Rainy, overcast weather can be excellent for foliage pictures. The foliage itself is healthy looking, rain adds an element of reflection and the lack of bright sun makes colors appear more vibrant.

Here are two examples from yesterday. The first is a Red Pine and the second an Oak.
