Sure the rain was gone today but...
...when we got to the farm in the morning, it was still wet...everywhere...
The pasture behind the garden was almost underwater, the driveway was soaked, and there was standing water under the house. According to the rain gauge, we had a bit over 3" of rain at the farm. That's a lot for just two days of rain. Almost everywhere we stepped outside it was muddy and squishy. It was also cold today, 40's and windy, so the windchill was even worse.
Needless to say, we stayed inside and did stuff. I unpacked and found a home for some salt and pepper shakers I was given as a gift a couple of years ago. I had lost track of them for a bit. They are all animals we have seen at the farm. A pig, an owl, a chicken, a cow and a fox....er, well, OK we haven't seen a fox, let's just say it's a coyote.
We stayed until almost sunset and then headed back into town. We got things done that we had been putting off and I'll blog about those in upcoming posts. Oh, and I unhooked all the hoses, drained them, and wrapped up the outside faucets. Winter is
It was still a relaxing day, as it always is out there.
Here is the forecast for the next few days. Freeze tonight...a bit of a warming trend Tuesday and then the bottom falls out again and it's 28 for a low and only 40's for a high. Time to stay inside where it's warm.
The extended forecast for the weekend shows rain AGAIN. Argh! We're all for rain, but how about during the week instead of our weekends?
Hope you are warm where you are and had a good weekend. Of course, those of you in other parts of the world where it is now Summer, well, should we send some cold your way?
