Living along the bank of the Grand River on Abrigador Trail, we are now official river rats--meaning that we live in a floodplain. But the term means more than that since my initials spell rat--and the reflections are ones both in my mind and on the water.

The weather has been dominating our lives for the past few weeks---cold and rainy almost every day, but even in the midst of the bad weather there were a few moments when it seemed like all was well, as this early evening photo shows. I looked out the window to the east amid the dark clouds only to see signs of the sun setting in the west.
The weather suddenly broke this past Saturday with sunny skies and a high near 80 degrees. We decided to go out for a little biking and ended up north of Rockford, more than 20 miles round-trip. Not bad for a season opener.
