And the rain, rain, rain...

came down, down down...

My son and I have been singing this wonderful Winnie The Pooh song for days.

Now, I know a few weeks ago I said smack me if I complain about the weather, but I think I'm officially allowed to now. Since Saturday we've had over 15 inches of rain and the river behind our house is flooding, big time. Thank God, we live on the high side and it's flooding across the river into fields and marshes. There is no risk to our home and most of the homes in our neighborhood, we would need a flood of biblical proportions to actually flood as high as our back door. We had an incredibly dry summer, so much so we've had a drought watch on for months. Well, we're all done with drought watches and warnings and the grass is now green again, which is rather nice since it hasn't been green in months.

The nice side of being stuck in the house, is not really being stuck, we've been rather lucky, we were able to get to school yesterday without a problem, today we are going to 2 book stores, the grocery store and Karate school. None of the roads we need will be flooded and since we're not made of sugar we wont melt. The down side Junior Barnes is crawling the walls, hopefully Karate will help.

It is giving me a little time to update my blog sidebar and now I'm going blog hopping for a little while.

Have a good one and those of you in the Northeast, stay dry.

I'm tempted to ask what was wrong with The Wedding Survivor but at the same time I kind of dont want to know, just in case it corrupts me...

Jay, I couldn't read 10 pages without scratching my head with a big, huh?? It may be me, so it's still on the TBR pile.
