That is a line of rain. If you look to the left you will see it stretched right across the bean fields. That is the edge of a rain storm as it hurried towards me. About 5 seconds after this – quite slowly really – the rain hit the car. All at once. Pelting me with rain.
Which reminds me of my poor friends in Houston – who are no longer there after having been evacuated. Refugees from a storm. I am so sorry. It is shocking to think this is haappening in the same country while –
Water always finds a way my Dad used to say. I have never experienced a flood – it must be terrifying.
My hay rack/wagon has been fixed again and is sitting tight waiting for the rain to finish. Still hoping we can begin the haymaking process this Friday. Touch wood.
The coolness prevails. Next week we begin to dip into the sixties in the day time. It bodes ill for the winter – but I am not thinking of the winter yet. As far as I know it is still SUMMER.
Today we begin to prepare the back field for the six remaining little pigs from Poppy’s brood. As soon as they are out of the barn, we clean up the farrowing area and Molly can go into the barn and settle in there in preparation for her next farrowing which I am thinking will be in about three weeks.
It is not raining so far this morning. Hopefully it holds off until after chores.
I hope you have a good day.
