When it finally stopped raining

So I know I’ve been absent for awhile, and I know you all know why. Audible Yoga is taking every spare minute, but I wanted to share our rainstorm with you.

About a week ago, we had a big storm. It rained for three days straight – awesome for sleeping but wow the kitties were upset. Here is Emily waiting it out on the step.

It brought to mind that old nursery rhyme “rain, rain, go away, come again another day”

When it finally stopped raining, we had lots of standing water. In the new herb planter:

In the empty planter – that’s a lot of water!

It also destroyed my favorite beach and washed a sailboat up on the beach

This beach often has boats anchored out and this one broke loose. The destruction did not stop people from enjoying the beach when the storm finally cleared … it’s just that the beach has really changed.

So, there you have it … I’ll try not to be so absent – it’s been a long haul.
