After months of the absence of a mist, a “spit”, or even a mere drop of rain the flood gates (literally) have opened. Beyond the sogginess, and slight inconvenience this might prove for our farm chores (more than slight if you poll the goats) there is a real concern of flooding, road closures, sudden gaping sink holes, and landslides. Our prayers are with those in Oregon and Washington who may be affected by these types of events.
So far, with the exception of some low-lying street flooding, our town has fared pretty well. The wonderfulness that the rain brings to our little homestead is the freshness, and running of the pond. The cold weather ducks that stay around for the winter, are enjoying it too.
If you have a couple of minutes, please enjoy the video below….it’s always a welcome sight when the pond starts flowing again.
Thank you for visiting our water-logged homestead today. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
