Rainy Wednesday

I had a great new backyard fountain for a while today.


This is what you have to do when the pool fills up so high that it almost collapses. We had a bit over 3 inches of rain early this morning.


By this afternoon, the gauge was a hair shy of overflowing the top (5 inches). So far, the predicted additional 3 to 4 inches have not arrived and we’re hoping they don’t. If school is closed tomorrow, I might have to pull out my last remaining hair.

That’s how today went. Work – listen to the pouring rain – work.

Tomorrow night, we will be knee deep in funnel cake and sweet corn at the fair if Mother Nature decides to cooperate. I can smell the grease already. Yum.
