Rain, Rain, Go Away
It’s rained here for the last 2 days….close to 5 inches. Last night we were treated to a beautiful lighting storm with high winds and heavy rains. We lost a beautiful old Hickory tree by the creek out back…it completely uprooted and came crashing down injuring several other trees on its way down. The tree was approximately 3 feet in diameter…I’m just estimating here, but it was VERY tall.
Motherkitty just called and said they were approximately 70 miles away and that it has rained all the way…it won’t be long until they are here.
I decided to tell you guys about the downed tree which I couldn’t photograph because of the rain and where it’s at. I would have to crawl around on the muddy creek bank, that, at the moment is overflowing to get a picture of it and normally I would, but Motherkitty, Tomas, Kitten Yarn & the girls are on their way, and I didn’t want to get all muddy. I did take an umbrella out there to get a peek at it…and it’s going to take some time to get it all sawed up. Luckily it missed falling on our little red dump wagon (that gets pulled by the riding lawnmower) and also missed our row boat.
Well, what do you know?! Here’s the sun and it’s shining brightly. I sure hope that it last for as long as Motherkitty, Tomas & family are here. It’s warm outside and if the hammock dries out, I know that Dancer girl & Little One will have fun playing on it…all kids do. They’ll have to wait until tomorrow though because the ground is soppy wet today.
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are today…and I hope that you are spending the weekend, as I am, surrounded by the people I love.
