What a difference two days can make.
After the outdoor riding arena was rototilled it looked like this.
Today it was a different story. And it was still raining!
A pond developed in the corner of the big pasture. Tonight it was twice as large.
Put rain sheets on the ponies and let them have the back pasture.
Hay nets of second cutting were under the shed roof, but they chose grass and rain instead.
Made a quick trip to Wegmans. Two days ago the trees looked like this.
This morning most of the blossoms had been pounded off by the heavy rain and high winds.
When I got back to the farm, the weather was doing a number on the gardens. Some of the tulips were knocked down to the ground...some just snapped off the stems.
So I brought them into the house.
Went out to do the chores early. This afternoon the horses were under the shed roof or in the indoor....but when I got out there they were getting soaked in the back pasture.
Set everything up and called them in.
They were soaked and had rolled in the arena. What a mess. Had to take all the sheets off and tucked them in for the night.
Leftover pasta for dinner, so of course we invited Tom over....he appreciated the fire as much as we did. Nothing like it on a day like this. One more week 'til Deb gets home.
It was all so familiar.
Just had to finish up that delicious sauce.
Sally brought up some rhubarb crisp this morning. It was still warm. We had it for dessert.
I am so done...and afraid that many more days of rain will do some serious damage.
Hope all is well where you are. Can you imagine having your property covered with 25 feet of water? It gives me a stomach ache to think about it. I can't imagine giving up everything we have.
