Yes, I think I see it! Could it be? A patch of blue skies?
Yesterday, the biggest storm we’ve seen in years dumped 3 1/2” of rain giving us a five day rain unprecedented total of 15 1/2” Incredible!
Thankfully, we are on high ground while other parts of the Southland didn’t fair as well as streets into torrents of mud and water. Oh, another thing to be thankful for is a good metal roof that we put in a few years back, so we didn’t have to worry about leaks.
The ground is so saturated that it couldn’t take any more and parts of the yard/garden turned into little lakes.
And picking produce? Ha! The heavy rain just wouldn’t let up so we hauled out the pop up that’s normally reserved for keeping the sun off during tabling events. Well, it got christened for a new purpose: to keep the water off our backs as we picked the produce orders for the front porch farm stand. Gotta make do and become creative!
Funny how in one season we went from the hottest day ever recorded to the wettest week. The weather is certainly swinging to the extremes.
Today will be a chance to clean up and catch up on chores (parts of the animal compound are a bit swampy, check on the bees) and hopefully we get a chance to dry out a bit before the next chance of rain this weekend.
Oh and there are a couple pots of marmalade on the stove so got to attend to those. Busy busy!
