Our first serious rain after the winter and everything feels and sounds strange. Because the ground is still frozen there is standing water everywhere and the snow is shrinking. After a day of rain the weather forecast calls for a switch to snow tonight. If it gets cold enough this area is going to turn into a skating rink.
What a relief that I sent my son to get a load of firewood yesterday before the rain began. This is a soaker.
One thing I will have to do today is go out with a screwdriver and raise the chicken gate. Right now it's standing in about three inches of water. Joy...hah!
