Well, as far as storms go, this one was not so bad. I have not found any trees down – yet. Some of the paths are still under water, so it may be a few more days until it is dry enough to go down to the lower 40. I do know that I heard a tree or two go down, but whether it was here or there – I do not know. And I have a couple of acres where I cannot go until dead winter, maybe even snow. Too much poison ivy in the summer time.
Anyway, here is what it looked like in my yard. These little lakes are where I mow the grass in the summer! The white thing is a bag of mulch next to the red crape myrtle.
Spook and Punkin followed me around, of course. Poor Punkin was desperate to find a dry spot so he could go to the bathroom. Spook was delighted at being able to take a drink wherever he wanted on his travels. All he had to do was lower his head!
Yule Tide held up pretty well in spite of the 55 mph winds.
Some of the pools of water actually had tiny waves in them from the wind.
Buddha didn’t seem to mind the 3.3 inches of rain or the wind.
