    It is pouring rain again!

    Just last week so much rain came down so fast, it flooded many streets in the Twin Cities (MN) and took out the electricity from a lot of homes. Quite a few trees came down too. We didn't have that damage here in Wisconsin, but we did watch the rain that day come in horizontally.

    I believe it has rained every single day for two weeks, and four of those rainfalls have been the flash flooding type. This has made it very difficult for us to get all of our perennials planted! Will be too wet tonight to do any.

    The only good thing I can say is that it's a lot better than the drought that was predicted for our area this year! I remember sweating bullets pulling heavy hoses around trying to keep all our new trees and plants watered when we first moved in about seven years ago.

    We've had so much rain too! We have had twice the normal amounts of rain for June. Storms came through Monday and Tuesday. Now the humidity is like hitting a brick wall when you go outside!

    We've been in the high 90s for 2 weeks and it doesn't look any better. We can only water our lawns the day of our scheduled waste pick up. That is also the only day we are allowed to wash our vehicles. $200.00 fine. So we spend a few bucks and go to the car wash instead. We're just the opposite. Never a happy medium

    If it isn't raining, it's hot and dry. We can't win in the weather skirmish. Mother Nature rules!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Rain. I've heard that word before.
    Never outsmart your common sense.

    We've had the "pineapple express". ( weather system from Hawaii) . Lots of rain and humidity...to the loss of millions of dollars in cherry crops. At least I'm not out pulling weeds in the rain; my DD says it's bad for the plants if I do that! What ever!
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    We could use some of that rain! We will get a hay crop this year - last year we didn't get anything. We've had a wetter spring than we've had for a long time but still no water in our little creek.
