May 16, 2016: No End to the Rain

More than a week and a half of continuous or nearly continuous rain here in central Transylvania.  It is getting hard to believe that the rain is still coming down so solidly, day after day.  This is a crazy amount of water.  No wonder that plums and grapes grow so abundantly here.  The grass is taking over the yard as there is really no way to cut it and has not been for a long time.  It just keeps growing.

It rained all day.  And it was a really dark day, too.  A steady, heavy rain all day.  The kind that really soaks the ground.  It felt like evening pretty much all day because it was so dark.  Most of the rain that we have had for the past two weeks has not resulted in so much loss of sunlight as this. No hint of the sun all day.
