The rain is over I hope. The sun came out just a little while ago. It is behind clouds now. There is a brisk breeze blowing, the clouds are moving across the sky. The blue I can see is like blue you see no other time of the year. It is so clear. Fall is almost here. Brook is outside in the pool we just got. To cold for me with the wind blowing but for a bored 7 year old it is perfect.
The rain has caused the backyard to flood and with the floods comes the ants.
They march in like they own the place. This is my house not theirs!
The kitties have shown up, some wet, some dry but all were hungry! The dog was laying up against the door this morning when I got up.
I walked outside and took a look around. the damage is small. My screen house is full of holes now, half of the gutters are destroyed. The pool has a bit too much water in it as does the water trough. One thing I saw that just made my day... a bluebird was sitting on the fence post singing its heart out. I could not hear it but I could see it had its head up and was flapping its wings. Pat said it was a pretty sound. All in all we came out of this pretty good.
The power was out all morning. When it finally came on I had missed the noon news. I will catch the evening news and see what damage has been done elsewhere.
