Rain, rain, go…

Have we had enough rain yet? It doesn’t matter since the forecast says more is coming. Added to that is the wind, which with the soaked ground, means the possibility of trees going down. This is scary. There is a huge pine tree in the front of the house. It already leans a bit toward the house. The tree is huge, about 4 feet around and 100 ft tall, so falling on the house would spilt it into two pieces. The bedroom is right in the path. One ear is always listening for a cracking noise.

There hasn’t been a bunch of weekends to work on the garden or prune trees. Yes, I know I could do this in the rain, but that’s not really going to happen. I would easily catch a cold or cough. If there is a break in the rain this weekend, I’ll make the effort. I need to dump all the water in various containers around to prevent any mosquito growth. If I can upload the video, you’ll see my wind chimes blowing in the wind. They hang in a fairly protected area. I can hear them when I’m inside the house too.
