Rainy Weather

19 May

We’ve been fairly rainy this spring.  We actually got lucky here on Thursday evening.  The storm went just north of my farm, and dropped lots of rain and hail on the town where I teach, but we didn’t see a drop of rain–just a bit of wind.

There’s a lot of water in the ditch.

We had rain yesterday and more today and more forecast throughout the week.

Everyone around here smells like wet dog.  They can’t even get a dirt bath (it would be a mud bath).

Yeah, we’re pretty muddy; although the picture below was taken before the worst of the rain came on Saturday.

It does make the grass grow, but I haven’t been able to get my garden planted.

My crops haven’t been planted.  It really makes it hard to get a lot of things done when we’re overly wet.

And don’t even start me on the roller coaster temperatures either.  That’s the kind of swing that makes animals sick (llama ulcers).  Seriously.

Hopefully, the weather will calm down soon.
