Rain, Rain, Go Away
Oh my. I wish it would stop raining. Yesterday afternoon, I dumped 3 inches of rain from the gauge. This morning, another 1.75 inches when I took the dog out. And it's still raining. They're predicting up to another inch today and yet another overnight. We've got water trickling in the basement again (sigh) and I don't know when I'm going to be able to wade into the garden to pick tomatoes. I ran out last night briefly to get some peppers for a friend and there is standing water in the barnyard not far from the garden. On my way to the bus stop this morning, I spied creeks out of banks, haybales sitting in over a foot of water and fields of soybeans nearly underwater. Eesh, I could definitely stand a bit of sunshine and clear weather.
