So the pitter patter of rain all day and all night for the last 48 hours is no longer delightful! Well over 5 inches has fallen according to the flower pot 3/4s full alongside the Taj. Enough – drought or not there is such a thing as too much water…..
Lenny the Dog hasn’t been out for walk in 24+ hours – he runs down bus steps , pees quick and then back up soaking wet even with his raincoat on. Longer outside moments require rain gear for both of us, awnings out with a golf umbrella. Hoping for rain to stop and sun to dry things – we are starting to grow mold here. The woods get wet differently than city streets – leaves, trees and bushes stay wet longer and soak unsuspecting passersby. Everything looks darker green – all around us but also quite soggy! No flooding here as we have elevation with many ponds and streams that happily accept extra water around us. We are thankful for them and have again witnessed another difference in urban and rural lifestyles.
