In the tradition of the Mr. Kimble Weather Pattern, the sun shone for 5 minutes today - while it was still raining, of course. Since March 1, we have had 3 inches of rain. That doesn't sound like a lot unless you happen to live in the supposed 'Rainshadow' of the Olympic Mountains. Last year, we had an inch and three quarters for the entire month. What does that tell you? As a matter of fact, since the first of March this year, we've only had two days during which it didn't rain. I think some Alpine must've offended the Rain Gods. The last storm ( of 7 in a row) rolled through last night, and now the basement is flooded. Thank goodness the barn doesn't have a basement.
Anyway, it wouldn't be so bad except all that rain has been accompanied by a lot of wind, most of which has been over 30 mph. My hair is a mess and I think I'm beginning to mold.
In light of all the rain, and coupled with the recent Tsunami warning we were under, I am of the opinion this is entirely too much water. A goat has to do what a goat has to do, so I've been checking out Boogie Boards on Amazon. With 'Prime', I can have it here in two days. I figure since the pond is so full, I can practice there - if I can convince the stupid ducks to move. Oy.
