It’s been a looong time since the arena by the house has been turned into a lake by a rainstorm. It happened last night.
It’s a pretty small lake, all right, but it was larger than this. I took this picture about eight o’clock this morning. The rain had stopped at about one, mostly, so some had drained off or soaked in. It still shows that we had a pretty good rain. It was probably about an inch. We certainly needed rain, but it’s better if it doesn’t all come at once!
Now comes the clean-up. There are a lot of wet pens that need draining or scraping out, so all available hands are being drafted to tractor duty. It’ll take a while, but there’s no more rain predicted for a week or so. It makes a lot of work for us, but it’s more than welcome all the same.
