Rain Rain GO AWAY...

Image
... at least for tomorrow...my day off? So far, this week, we've seen not quite a FULL rain gauge (that is 10" my friends). We've had to erect an umbrella over the raised bed gardens because the tomatoes were throwing out life rafts to the strawberries. What a sight that was to see. And the squirrels are taking up residence in the oak tree and fishing their nuts (yes, I said it) out of the passing river underneath. The hummingbirds have given up on the feeders (rain is beating them off) and are roosting on the fence under the eaves (which is driving the cats absolutely NUTS). The mice have taken up umbrellas and moved (in formation, no less) into the shed out back (stray cats have taken over the garage). It's suddenly interesting to be the higher ground around our neighborhood. And, on my way home tonight, 28th street has been closed. Knew that was coming because water was already over the road when I passed @ 4am ...we've had another 13 hours of rain since then..…
