    Praise da Lord it did not rain yesterday. If this continues by tomorrow it may be dry enough to mow. I really dont like doing it on Sunday but I am sure God understands after all he made it soggy.:)

    So what did it do rain for the next few days!! Woke up to the rain and no sign of letting up. When it finally quits it's gona be tough to mow all hte grass and such it's growing fast and loving the rain.

    Think I'll head for the
    library and check out something thick to read may be a while.

    Cajun, The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire is a great looonnnggg read and may fit your needs!
    We awoke to the sound of rain this morning, then fog when the rain stopped, and finally we now have sunshine. God willin' I'll be able to get into the tomato patch and weed tomorrow. My husband looks at the grass and sighs, a long, heartfelt sigh.

    It's raining here again too. It hadn't dried out from the last of the rain before it started again.
    The trees and most plants are very lush and loving it. A few aren't so happy, including my basil.

    Raining again today. This must be what it is like to live in England or Ireland.

    Well today we are coping with very strong wind from out of the south-west and the rain is lashing down. Looks like a stay at home day.
    The upside is that the garden really needs the rain. There are cracks in the soil.

    So sorry for all of you still under the weather so to speak. it finally dried out here but went from soupy to concrete crust. nasty, we ran the rototiller through the garden and then I had to hoe between the bean to get the 1" crust broken up so they could start growing. they looked awful. as soon as we got that done we had a gentle rain and they have changed dramatically.

    ten days and well over a foot of rain today is posed to be the last rainy day as this big nasty low gets shoved east by a cool front. I am hoping for at least 3 dry days then I should be able to mow and if I have time tackle our garden boxes oour big 4x12 box looked inviting to Jolie as it was drier than the yard so she leaped the chicken wire and used it like her personal sand box. The only thing that survived the play was the cucs growing tight to each edge on trellises. Lets hope I can get the grass cut and weed wacking and such done fore son Joe arrives next month for a visit. He lives and works in upstate NY so he is in for a bit of a climate shock.

    Philip, you have almost as many rainy days as I do sunny days in a year, our average is 232 days of sun with no sign of rain during that time.
