The Deluge

Today was definitely Wet Wednesday. I don’t know how much rain we had, but during the night we had lightning that was too close for comfort, and at some point around 1:30 a.m., there was definitely a lightning strike in the neighborhood. Close. Even Tesser the Chihuahua zipped out from under the covers when that one hit. Everyone is waterlogged, but the weather sounds much better for the next 5 days or so. The paddocks are waterlogged and mucky beyond belief, but with the change in the weather, this should get better.

So at least tonight the rain has finally stopped, and our Treadler’s trip to Vinalhaven is all scheduled for tomorrow morning. I am very excited. I have to finish getting together my spinning and knitting projects, and will be ready and waiting in the morning. Nothing better. Spinning, knitting and great food, here we come!

  1. We got over 4 inches down here! But the grass desperately needed it, so no complaints. Have a WONDERFUL weekend at the spinner’s retreat.

  2. Poor little Tesser! Lightning strikes send cats hiding under the bed here. Little Abby growls at them first though…

    Have a great time at Vinalhaven! Safe travels.
