Pretty sure this flood is a hundred year flood. The whole area is devastated. Roads are gone. homes are gone, and some of the homes have been here well over one hundred years. A state of emergency has been declared.
Been up since midnight with the dogs due to thunderstorms, and as I type this, it’s really rockin’ out there. So anyway, not looking good for getting out of the house, again. Even if the weather gets better, I haven’t had any sleep, so, fuck it.
Update: That first line of storms brought just over an inch of rain in 1 hour.
I got quite a bit mowed today, front, sides, back, and some of the apple orchard. It started to rain, so I quit. The lawns have needed mowing for a while now, but I haven’t felt like doing it, like no reason to. I hope, even pray, that I’m not mistaken for caring again.
Looks like the rest of the day will be, well, nothing, it’s too rainy, hot and humid to do much else.
I do plan on getting and about tomorrow, it’s been far too long since I’ve gone out to enjoy myself, almost a month. So unless it looks like an all day torrential downpour all day, I’m heading out.
Here’s some photos from yesterday of the fruit around the house starting to come out.
I was planning on taking today off from work, but changing to Wednesday for a couple reasons. One, Mondays seem busier at work and two, there’s some rain coming tonight/tomorrow so the trails wont be so dusty Wednesday. Also with a little rain and warmer temps, the wild flowers should be really popping out.
So anyway, that’s the plan.
Got a few things done today, but didn’t work all that hard, sort of a relaxing day really. I am planning to take tomorrow off to get out and into the woods.
One thing that has bugged me for quite some time is where a burn barrel was. It was right out on the main side lawn and stuck out like a sore thumb. So, I moved it…at last.
I’ll update this post with more lilac photos.
I have no idea what these are. They have a stem sort of like snake grass, but smooth it’s whole length and the flower is similar to clover. The leaf is similar to the stem.
Update – These are wild Chives. Time for a baked potato! 🙂
