even in the rain…

coreyyardI saw lightening this afternoon and heard thunder.  It’s pouring.  In the last two days I’ve seen more hummingbirds than sparrows.

It helps to have a guitar player / producer / keyboardist / vocalist who has tour tags from opening with the likes of Sheryl Crow and John Mayer helping you out.

Great pics, looks like you have a great view in spite of the neighborhood. Loving the strange weather though. Next time we’d LOVE to see you all. Maybe we could arrange something.
