Kristine and I heard and felt a big thump yesterday and agree that it was probably a tree that went down somewhere close, but not on our property. I haven't walked around and looked, but the sound and feel seemed farther away.
I never saw the sun today, but it did stop raining for most of the day, so I let Morgan and the chickens out to play. I almost expect the leaves covering the ground to dissolve and disappear because they are so wet and smooshy. The dirt up here doesn't turn into deep muddy messes because the ground sucks up the water just about as fast as it falls or melts. And we are on a slight slant so extra water has a tendency to run away.
Soooo, just as I'm going to publish this post, Blam! The power goes off! Like Kristine says, I'm really getting tired of this. A tree must have gone down, because it is not windy and there is not much snow to speak of. Poor linemen who have to go out in the crummy weather and find and fix the outage. Thank you! I'm posting now before the power goes again.
