It has been a stormy couple of days here providing much needed rain. It also makes the dirt surrounding the house into mud - the kind that piles up on the bottom of your feet until you have grown several inches after just a few steps!
Murphy, bless his heart, decided to walk in it yesterday - twice and what a mess cleaning his feet off was. He seemed to learn after the second time to not do this - mostly because (I think) he doesn't like having his feet cleaned with water and then a rag.
This morning the sun is shining on the Stansbury mountains to the west showing the fresh snow way up there. The photo below is from yesterday looking out the front door east to the Oquirrh mountains. Storms and big skies provide a lot of intriguing views.
