Last night’s rain
Fall is here. It was like the weather changed over night. You could feel a chill in the wind. It started raining over a week ago. Then yesterday another storm front moved in with high winds and torrential rains. The picture above is or normally our neighbor’s lawn is now a pond.We could not believe our eyes this morning, when we looked out the window. Look how much it rained last night.
This is my new flower bed that Miss Piggy keeps eating my new roses off my bushes and digging up my flowers. It is also the one I keep chasing her around. It survived the rains with no signs of damage. I am happy to report.
Our vegetable patch was not so lucky. Onions are laying down and the lettuce was blown over. This part of the garden is standing in water and yet the corn was completely unscathed. Who can figure how that is possible? Roads washed out and farmers are stressing over their fall harvests being destroyed. The rain is hindering the farmers from harvesting their crops. We have had over a week of hard rains. Last night storm was unusually intense. More rain in the forecast for the rest of the week.
