Since When is this Blog Based Out of Seattle?

It’s raining again. I’ve emptied a completely full rain gauge three times over the past three weeks. Then it dried up for two days and I could actually walk to the barn without sinking ankle deep in the mud. Now the rain is back.

I’m not complaining though. Nope, not even a little bit. Rain is good. Rain makes the grass grow. I’m not going to complain because if I do then the rain will dry up and  go away like it did last year. I like rain. Rain is good. It makes Old-One Eyed Calico Jack all shiny, sleek and sexy looking.

And heaven knows he could use all the help he can get.

looking at Jack all sleek looking I couldn't help but think of the studly calendar guys oiling up to show off the muscles. Calico Jack just wants to highlight his "pecks.". So sorry; couldn't help myself.

The best of both worlds would be rain at night. Ah if we could only make that happen. Enjoy your day!!

Our mud was Still ankle deep... And it rained.. But I am Trying to NOT complain because like you said it makes the grass grow but right now I could grow rice on this hill..... SOme places around use got close to 16 inches in the big rain and another 1/2 inch last night but suppose to be 72* to day and climbing each day!! Yeah warm sunny days.. and probably humid...LOL

It's the same here--lots of rain and cool weather. The garden plants are just 'sitting' there, but boy the grass is growing like crazy. Gotta admit all the mud is a pain though! As usual though it'll probably get hot and dry all of a sudden.

Jack just needs to shake the rain off his feathers and he's good to go. Birds are lucky that way.

We'll be happy to take some of that excess rain!!! Don't believe all those radar maps you see on TWC. We haven't had any in two months and its getting really dry here. There are lots of places along the Gulf coast and all of Florida, south Alabama and south Georgia that need rain desperately.
