Rain, rain go away...for a bit
Thursday, May 17, 2018
We've had rain for a few days. We also avoided the nasty stuff in the news by about 3 towns! Lucky us!
I've been hoping for rain as standing to water my $$$ of foundation plantings done in March is a bit tough on the knee and boring. The 20 or so inkberry plants (similar to boxwood) need tender watering until the roots grab hold. Then there are the soon-to-be fruitful garden edibles I've lovingly watered while they grab hold as well.
I've listened to the "rain train" on the roof for a solid 6 hours now; little signs of stopping according to the weather service. Puddles abound on my lawn My pool has about 4 inches of standing water on the cover and I had it dry last Saturday!
Sigh. At least it's not snow!
