There was thunder, loud booming mountain thunder but not that much rain. Gee and I was all prepared for a deluge. Makes me feel kinda cheated after I did all that work getting ready for a downpour.
Birds on the line...
I like how clothespins look sitting on the line like little birds waiting for some laundry to clasp in their claws.
Part of getting ready was to bring in or cover the things I couldn't move. Things like the clothespin bag and the lounge cushion can stay dry outside hanging on the side of the house under the eave overhang.
I covered other things like the porch swing with plastic tarp and may just leave it on for Winter this year. The snow is not doing the plastic any good and the plastic is getting dark.
There were several wind chimes I brought inside that are really not made to withstand weather. I hung the biggest one on the hall tree because I didn't know what else to do with it. It can stay there for now with all the dog leashes, the veggie shopping bag and the egg basket.
