Clouds before the storm
it’s raining, it’s pouring!
The much anticipated winter storm finally arrived late last evening.
It’s been raining pretty steadily now for hours (rain gauge has us down at 1 inch already!) and it looks like the heavy downpours will continue throughout the day.
Last night Jordanne and I went to see our friends sing in their church choir and during the performance got a call from Justin informing us that he caught a glimpse of the weather forecast saying that SNOW could be possible down to 1,800 ft. He said that the weatherman rattled off a few cities that could expect snow and Pasadena was one of them!
Hmmm, with snow recently falling in New Orleans (one of our hometowns) I wouldn’t be surprised.
I got a bit excited when I heard the news since snow is such a rarity, but after the initial thrill of the news had to consider that we really, really don’t want/need snow. We still recovering from the historic deep freeze of ’07. So let’s just hope that it continues to rain and that temperatures won’t drop too low. Well, then again, snow is warmer than ice.
Whatever happens hopefully the garden will pull through.
Good thing is that with this latest storm the garden is getting a much needed drenching.
Of course with such inclement weather has us held up inside. In anticipation of being housebound, this morning I see a few of our old “homestead” related books scattered on a few tables. Perhaps some new projects are in the works! One one of our to do list is a solar dryer that I got plans for.
It’s dawn now time to check in on the animals and do a bit of outdoor chores… in the cold rain. Yeah, that’s life on an urban farm for you. Gotta do the chores no matter what the weather.
Stay tuned for Weekly Meal Wrap Up, winter sowing, food pantries and more. The posting blitz continues.
What do you enjoying doing when the weather sends you indoors? Care to share?
Now if you would excuse me. Me and Mr Welly are about to do some outdoor chores.
