I swear we're not sure if we should just give up on all outdoor activities for the rest of the year or what.  

As I type this, we've had almost 4 inches of rain in about 2 hours.  Flooding is occurring all over town, and the storms are virtually stationary so the water is just continuing to come down.

We're not positive, but this just might have to be the next project for the farm...

Sigh...will write when I can as power is flickering on and off.


  1. Perhaps the universe is trying to suggest you run a 'trout farm' lol. Seriously, I can see how frustrating it must be .... hope it dries up soon for youi.

  2. The Ark looks like the size boat you may need :-)
    My son lives just east of Dallas and he can't believe the flooding they're getting. Last week an Interstate highway was closed due to being flooded over!

  3. Good grief. It doesn't seem fair! Now I'm worried about your bees getting out to forage. Do stay safe.

  4. "You're gonna need a bigger boat." - I think you must have had this running through your mind lately. That ark might be just big enough.
    Hope y'all are staying safe.

  5. 1st Man,

    Be safe!!! I sent our ARK down toward you just in case you need it.
    You may have to ship it back up this way, expecting rain again.

  6. Sigh.
    Be safe, and hunker down and wait for the sunshine. Good job you got the mowing in last weekend.

  7. Bless your hearts, stay safe.

    We are drying out here and need some of your rain.

  8. Great year for all them rubber boots that the stores sold this year. They have really come in handy instead of collecting dust. (gotta have some humor to go with all that is going on with the weather this year and it's not just in Texas but strange weather all over).

    I know how discouraging it is with all the rain that has fallen in our state lately, but we all must accept the bad along with the good in our lives. Nothing we can do on what Mother Nature gives us. Just can't have one without the other. We have to have the bad in order to appreciate the good things in life no matter how small it maybe.
    I believe that in order to deal with uncertainty and the chaotic ups and downs nature of life, we have to accept that life just is and embrace the chaos that we inevitably encounter.
    Life is just the way it is supposed to be: unpredictable, good, bad, ugly, and great all rolled up into one incredibly short experience.

    Enjoy the day, embrace it and be grateful for the blessings that have been given to us.

  9. Wow and I thought Illinois had been having a lot of rain! I hope y'all are staying warm and dry. Maybe a few inside projects that would wait until fall or winter can get knocked out. Stay safe!

  10. I am east of you, so I get your leftover rain, but it seems y'all are absorbing the brunt of it. We are only getting an inch or so an hour when it storms and have avoided any major flooding. I suggest a row boat at the very least!

  11. Remember all that praying for rain we did four years ago? Delayed deliveries can be a pain. And we all prayed REALLY HARD. Bee safe and careful out there.

  12. Scaled down model of the Ark

  13. WOW! I'm going to send you a pump and a super-duper long hose...send that water to me!!!

  14. sorry but i am sitting here laughing! you guys sure are getting hit hard this year.
