The rain is unbelievable in this part of the country. It isn't just our area, but the whole mid section of the country.
Roads have flooded and washed away, homes and businesses are under water, cars have washed away, and on and on. It is really sad for so many.
We had three days of rain over the weekend. and had flooding. We finally got about a day and half of dry weather. Luckily, the water in the yard had rescinded, and I took advantage of a few dry hours to mow - as did a few neighbors. It was really windy and chilly out there.
WEEDS, WEEDS, AND MORE WEEDS are growing like crazy. There will be no chance to deal with them till at least next week.
It started raining again yesterday at 3PM and hasn't stopped, and isn't supposed to till tomorrow afternoon. Sigh!!!!!!!
As much rain as we have seen, other parts of the country have had it worse. It is so sad.
Weather tends to put a damper on a good mood as well. I have felt so melancholy this week. I just can't get myself excited about anything. Hopefully that funky feeling leaves soon.
The rain sure has made the flowers start to bloom. Here is a little preview of what is to come this summer.
I sure hope everything lasts through the weekend. We have freeze and frost warnings for this weekend!!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's May - this is crazy.
It sure will be a while before any gardening is done this year.
I'd like to ask everyone to say a little prayer for all the farmer's across the land. They have lost many fields of young crops to water and will have to replant. Many haven't even had the opportunity to plant.
Hopefully all this spring rain will bring crops and beauty this summer.
Prayers for the farmers and for the property owners hit by flooding.
Blessings to all.
