A Wild Spring Rain
The reason it looks like this is because we had the wildest rain this morning . The wind was so furious that it was bending the trees to the ground. I told DH that I was mad at the wind because it was blowing the blossoms off of the apple trees and making it look like snow all over the ground! Plus , it was taking away those beautiful blossoms that I wanted pictures of when they were "Perfect". Looks like Mother Nature has plans opposite of mine!
DH's back is giving his a lot of pain from where he carried rolls of that black felt to put on my cousin's roof top that the tornado damaged. He knows better -but you know how it is when we just want to help someone and you are used to having the health to accomplish that.This getting older stuff is very challenging. I Hate to see him suffer so much.It scares me to death with the cancer hanging over our heads.
The rain was coming down in Sheets so thick that you could hardly see. I took it as long as I could and then when I caught it taking a breathe I ran for the critter building so I could do chores. Then in between breaths of torrential downpours - I would dart out and feed and water and then back to the building and feed and water some of them until it slacked again and then dash out for another critter. It worked pretty good that way and I hardly even got wet.
I checked on the wood stove and it was out of wood so I threw in a few small pieces and turned the fan on to see if it would go ahead and catch up.
