I know all of you living in Oregon and Washington
are thinking I'm a ... whiner right now.
Really, I'm not.
Well, maybe a little bit, but there is good reason.
You see ... we live at the bottom of a steep hill and all the water heads directly to the bottom ... right to our back door.
We've put in all kinds of drains to direct the torrents of water away from the house and barn, but so far we're still wading.
Poor Royal needs fins and a snorkel mask,
because it is a swimming pool around the barn.
It's really just a royal mess!
Nope, I'm out there clearing drains, digging new trenches
and scooping the water out of the barn
and getting soaked to the skin and my hair is a mess
and I'm getting cold and the shovel is really heavy
and I'm not liking this.
But as I said ... I'm not a whiner.
I'd show you more photos, but it is just too awful!
But Alberta is having a grand time.
She has tried out every water hole ... hasn't missed a one.
We did escape for awhile to the park nearby.
Really very pretty over there.
But now ... back to the farm. Any mud & rain experts out there?
Sure would like suggestions.
