Muddy Waters are Going Down…

Wow!  I didn’t relieze just how bad our county was hit until out driving the day before…  many roads closed, peoples business and homes under water, it was bad!  We lucked out.  Yeah, we had some flooding of the out buildings and pasture under water but most of it is gone now.  Everything is just a sort of weird muddy color…  I hate to say it, but a nice simple shower would help make things look a little nicer, but we don’t need any more rain for awhile!   So many farmer’s fields are under water still!

We are lucky, right now we have a few spots of standing water but it’s draining pretty quickly…  drying in the sunshine we are finally getting.   The sheep paddock is the worse, it’s still mostly mud and water.   We are looking into getting some huge bags of saw dust to try and build up some of the resting areas for the animals, but in the meanwhile, they are in the middle yard most of the day to help give the paddock time to dry up without animals making it worse.

Everyone is just a little dirty and muddy looking.   Once it dries up a bit more we will be able to get out and start cleaning up the fallen branches and areas that the grass is just a mess.  Might have to reseed a few areas.  We shall see.  I hope be able to get into my garden today and just assess the damage.  Since most of my plantings are in raised beds, I think it will be okay.  Just muddy!

Thanks for all the good wishes and prayers during this tough time!   We made it…  I hate to think what it would have been like if our neighbor has not done that extensive drainage work last fall.  Wow!   I think we would have really been in trouble.  Hopefully, things are going to return to a nice normal summer soon!
