HAPPY 4TH OF JULY 2013
Emptied another 1 1/3 inch of rain from the gauge this morning at choretime. I did chores again in the pouring rain trying to keep my market clothes dry with cover-alls and a raincoat.
This is surprising to see only this much water standing in the front lower pasture as last night it looked like it would surely get across the road.
This is our new set up with lots more baked goods room.
The places I needed to stop for baking supplies were closed this afternoon so I'll use what I have or go shopping early tomorrow for supplies if needed.
Same ole thing on the way home.
#2 son came early for our cook out and helped me unload and get things put away.
We had a family cook out today by putting the grill under the outside patio and eating inside. All the family made it and we got to meet the guy daughter has been dating for the last month. Matt was a nice guy and fit in nicely.
We grilled Johnsonville brats and hamburgers and had potato salad,cucumber salad, chips and dip,slaw and peach cobbler to make a really great meal. We saved the watermelon for Sunday so maybe we can get outside to eat that.
The rain came down hard all evening. I emptied another 1 1/2" from the gauge at choretime and it continued to rain throughout the evening.
After everyone left we put all the dogs up so the fireworks that had already started popping around wouldn't scare them to bad tonight.
For a very rainy evening I was surprised at all the fireworks that were popping around the community and the "Fabulous Fourth" fireworks at Jackson Park went on as scheduled.
The clouds hung so low that we couldn't see even any color but we sure could hear them.
The creek is flooded over the road tonight and #1 son has been called out to put up high water signs around the county with the DOT.
At 11:15 the rain has slacked off so maybe the flooding won't be too bad.
Hope you and yours had a wonderfully happy and safe Independence Day celebration today.
Thanking God for the blessing of a wonderful family.
Good Night and God Bless.
