    Chicken rescue

    To say it has poured rain today is a gross understatement. We are already saturated and it just hasn't stopped. I looked out and the chicken pen was a small pond and the chickens were wearing little yellow rubber boots I knew I had to go out and let them out into the yard and I really didn't want to get wet. I was very glad the neighbors weren't home cause this old woman put on her flip flops and bathing suit, dashed through the backyard, let the ladies out, grabbed a very wet and upset cat and ran back in the house. Thinking I may have to lay down the quilt I'm working on and start plans for a building a boat.
    Come on sunshine!!!!

    NOT raining in Southern California. BOY is it cold. 28 degrees this morning. Should be at least in the high 70s.

    no rain here today, but the other night a lot and sleet too. I had a good laugh at the picture of you in flip flops in the dead of winter. Glad everyone is drying out now.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I would have loved to have seen that!! Although I would have done the same thing, haha! My girls' coop gets muddy too, when it rains a lot around here. Thankfully they have other shelter.

    Glad hubby wasn't home to get pictures. We're supposed to get even more rain tomorrow but hopefully the end is in sight. The cat sits in one of the nesting boxes and communes with the chickens. She was glad to be let into the garage. The ladies and Oliver the rooster have been standing on the front porch all afternoon. The kids at the daycare across the street are loving it! They came out in raincoats to play and the lady that keeps them brought them across the street to feed the chickens a loaf of ZUCCHINI BREAD!

    Lordy, can't get this visual outta my mind!! Sounds like something I'd do , too, in the dark of night (with yard lights blaring) in my nightie, barefooted, to get something out of the car!
    So glad your chickies have some duck friends apparently.

    When you build that boat, be sure to use colorful scraps to sew a sail for it.

    Beautiful day here, but we did have an earthquake last night. First one that was strong enough to wake me up in years. Felt and sounded like a car drove into the house.

    I was looking at my emergency water supply just this week and thinking it is time to replenish it. I have a drinking water supply in a food safe 5 gallon jug and another supply of about 4 gallons in none food safe container for other uses.

    The midwest is sandbagging along the Mississippi, esp St Louis. Just awful!

    My brother had to do a chicken rescue.We had rain for 5 days and nights. Temps were in the low 30's and only 20 at night-wind anywhere from 10 to 30 mph.and higher at night. Lots of flash floods throughout the state and into Arkansas. But waking today to beautiful sunshine and back to wearing a hoody. Temps will be heading back into the 50's and 40's for night time.

    Don't forget their "floaties" next time! One for each wing! Wish you were my neighbor, sounds like things I've done (and still do!) Go chickens!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Loved your description! Can relate because I am an old lady too. Probably older than you are! (84 years old.)

    Definitely put a rin on my chin to picture you out there in flip-flops and bathing suit this time of year. It is COLD here and our road has been solid ice for a week. Will be glad when it starts to back down a bit

    got some sad news and had to read this again to put a smile on my face.
    I'd do that for a stray cat. But, I'd have put my water wings on first!! LOL
    You gave us all a good visual picture to carry with us! thank you for that and saving the girls.

    No rain here...a snow flurry here and there. We got snow Monday and everything is plowed now so streets are ok to drive on. It's December and it's Iowa.....

    I feel for you...We had 21 inches in three days a couple months ago and needless to say everything was under water. My best friend is having both her houses torn down because of the flooding ruining the houses.
