The wettest month of the year!

Usually the best way to check what the weather is doing is to look out of the window.

This month all we've been able to see
through the rain streaked window panes is
 water, water everywhere.

The average monthly rainfall in Normandy 
during January is 70 - 74 mm.
 This year we've had 117.6 mm.

But on Thursday,
 just for a nanosecond,  
the sun was spotted
 peeking through the trees
 the sky was blue
 white clouds not grey
 so I snapped away.

Linking to Sunlit Sunday


  1. It is amazing what even a glimmer of sunshine can do for us!
    We managed a bit of sunshine yesterday and now it's back to grey, wet and foggy.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. I don't feel so fed up now, knowing that Normany is having the same awful weather as we are. I'm looking forward to spring I'm you are too.

  3. Much the same here in N. Ireland so nice to glimpse the Sun!

  4. Raining here today. We need all we can get as TX is still in a drought. It's actually a very typical January day.
    Glad you have some sunshine, my friend.

  5. Lovely photos .... spring is just around the corner :)

  6. It may be wet but your sky is spectacular!

  7. Good morning Maggie,

    Beautiful photos documenting your rainy season. That flash of sunlight will soon light up the skies and warm your heart, I'm sure. We've been having very similar weather to you, which is uncharacteristic of Crete, with many downpours and hurricane worthy winds!

    Wishing you a bright Sunlit Sunday!


  8. Isn't it nice when the sun comes out? Cloudy here today ... I hope the clouds are "pretty"!!!!!

  9. So wonderful to see the sun shining! It gives you hope that Spring is going to arrive!

  10. Hello Maggie, Your sunlit photos are all lovely. We can be quite rainy in January, too. It's always wonderful to see a break in the clouds!

  11. Those glimpses of sun are so welcome on the rainy days of winter.

  12. A spot of sun in winter is a gift. I hope your February is more promising and less wet. Have a great week!

  13. Oh my word. That is a lot of extra rain. Glad there was a shimmer if sun too lovely a e to live x

  14. Lovely sky shots! It sure is a great feeling when the sun peeks through the clouds.

  15. I hope you put your face into the sun for that nanosecond!!

  16. That is a lot of "wet" that you received. Here, there is snow in the forecast.
    I'm glad you were able to find some sunshine and enjoyed seeing it in your sky shots and through the branches.


Thanks for stopping by, your visit just made my day!
