Holy Mackerel!

Thursday, April 11, 2013

It is gale force winds here, and raining so hard people are pulling off the CITY STREETS they cannot see to drive..
I am thinking we have already gotten between three to five inches of rain since Tuesday. I can't be sure, but I think the guy down the street is building an ark.. If I see critters go marching two by two into that craft, I will have to get my snorkies around my arms and start smearing vaseline on my bod to keep less pruney for as long as possible.
It is just above freezing and my fibro has flared along with arthritis, so ironically, I had to stand UNDER HOT RUNNING WATER to help alleviate the pain ..

Our street was blessed about ten years ago to get new storm drain lines installed. Another neighbor informed me that the township had a $60,000 surplus as of that day and would I petition the other 24 neighbors on the street to get this $$ to pay for the pipes and connections,, labor would be just $300 added to our taxes over the next three years. The old ladies refused to sign, but I got over 80% of the people to sign,even my next door neighbors who were actually in the process of moving IN to their house!! I went to the Board meetings and it got approved. My back yard used to be a nesting ground for Canadian honkers, ducks,etc until this new line was put in..

I may have to invest in some serious sponges to absorb what the ground cannot hold.. This land around Lake Huron is famous for having lots of clay, so it kind o f burps water back 'atcha..

    LINDA, I hope the rain abates and there is a quick warm up to dry the ground. We too have a house built on clay. The water just stays on top of the ground.
The poor Robins fall over after they tug on those worms they are so hard to get out of there.
It is bad enough with rain but cold and wind is so much worse than snow.

Sorry your weather is so bad.
It has to get better soon and the sooner the better will be GOOD!!

(((((HUGS))) and much love Stay warm. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
