Shimmering Yellow Mustard


Mustard is growing in the empty field near the corner of Chappell Road and Santa Ana Road. The yellow mustard was practically glowing in the afternoon sun today.  Normally, by now, the mustard would be several feet high. Better late than never.

Hurrah for the rain!

A Bene Sky

We hadn't seen a tempestuous rainfall as we did last weekend in a long time. Maybe some of you heard about the flooding in Hollister which actually made national, news.  A creek flooded about 10 miles north of downtown in a rural area, causing more than 100 residents, with their pets, horses, and other small animals, to evacuate.  All is getting back towards normal, as far as I've heard.

In the photo, the sign for San Benito Bene also speaks well of the sky above downtown Hollister a few days ago. Yup, we've had delightful sunshine. Just enough to get us ready for this next one, which some weather guys say will start tomorrow and continue to possibly next Tuesday.

Where ever you are, dear Take 25 to Hollister readers,  may you be warm and dry.

I Spy . . . Low Clouds!

I spy with my little eye very low clouds crossing Sunnyslope Road.

Heads up!

I Spy . . . Raindrops and a Schoolbus

I spy with my little eye this morning happy raindrops and a happy yellow elementary school bus.

Didn't you love all the rain this morning? Hope there's a lot more on the way.

When Pigs Fly

One HUGE pig flew about Highway 25 on Monday. Hope it brought a lot of smiles to people.

A Tropical Vibe

Close my eyes for a second. Feel the sun's warmth on my body. I can almost believe I'm in Hawaii, rather than traveling along Union Road looking towards the Gabilan Range. Sweet Aloha!

Loving the Weather

This past Friday was one of our wonderful rainy days (just like today). When I was downtown,  I took this shot of blue sky breaking through the clouds north of town while grey clouds were bringing rain south of us.

I love Mother Nature.

Splish Splash!

Fairview Road, looking north from Sunnyslope Road,
from the other day.

The weather report says it'll be raining a lot this morning and again in the evening. Be careful out there. Slow and easy, please.

The View from San Felipe and Shore Roads

Those green rolling hills run above the Pacheco Pass Highway (aka Highway 152). I took the photo from San Felipe Road, by the Dunneville Cafe & Market. They make a delicious tri-tip sandwich. It was well-worth a trip in the rain for the Husband and me the other day. Yummmm.

Those were some amazing clouds over Hollister on Thursday afternoon.

Plowing and Thinning in Cold Temps

The temperature was about 37 degrees around 8 a.m. this morning. A few degrees colder an hour earlier. Brrrrr.

Uhm. . .

Shades of Twilight Zone. Those clouds are passing through the sign!

FYI: I did not do any editing in Photoshop. Well, except to sharpen the photo.

See you tomorrow.

Every Bit of Rain Helps

It rained, I was told. It was short but a very heavy pour.

I may not have heard or seen it, but I saw signs of rain on the flowers and on the cement and ground in our backyard this morning.  And, the clouds  almost looked like they were asking, "So, how'd you like that rain?"

I liked it a lot, thank you very much.

Looking Upward on Enterprise Road

It was a beautiful blue sky earlier this morning. Now, it feels like the fog is coming back in. Unless. Perhaps. Maybe. Gathering rain clouds. We can hope.

Swelling in Hot Weather

Monday afternoon got outrageously h-o-t! in Hollister—103 degrees! That's very unusual for us. Fortunately, the temps went down 10 degrees within the hour when the winds picked up. Also strange in my book.

By the way, here's my original photo:
