"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Got Rain?

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.

Oh yes we have rain but I didn't see a rainbow today. Nice photo.
Marigold, I hear that at the end of a rainbow is a pot of gold peanuts.

Hi Marigold. It sounds like you are up to your armpits in rain. We are getting it here on the other side of the US in Maine. At least it is getting rid of our snow. I got the blog printed from
Blog2print.com. The price varies depending on what you want. They also have a soft cover for less. Get on the computer and see what it would cost. Every goat needs a book about themselves. Stay dry.

Forgot the boogie board and see if amazon has arks. Seriously. Save a friend. Save the goat parents for the new world's first genetic testing project.
