Soakin' in the 'Hood: Rain, Rain, Go Away!

My sense of humor is waning...
It's raining, it's pouring, the old man says I'm snoring... what's the point in getting up when it is so dreary out?   Our yard is saturated and a river runs through it.  I had to go through a swamp to clean the hen house.  Every footprint I left filled with water.  It's the Ohio version of Oceans '11 around here.  It is said that if you don't like the weather here, don't worry, it will change in a couple hours.  This forecast is easy:  Sun comes out for 2 minutes, rinse, repeat.

Our front yard...

My neighbor's backyard, attached to another neighbor's overflowing pond... some of Mark's trees in foreground...

Our side yard...

Well, must slosh through final errands and chores!  Am planning to post a far cheerier message by Saturday evening.  

See you then!

  1. Yes you have the floods bad. I have weeds everywhere from all this rain and decent temps, been pulling them for 2 days. Never had to do that end of December before.
