This Year is a Write Off
We got hit with another big storm last night. My rain gauge goes up to 6 inches, not that I think it keeps up accurately after about 2 inches though. Anyway it was completely full this morning so I have no idea how much rain we got but I do know that it was coming into the basement faster than I could pump it out and I am still not sure how it is getting in there. Never have figured it out.
I am so ready to tear this old house down it ain't even funny.
At this point I have completely given up on getting anything done this Summer. Just picking up the blown over stuff from the yard is like working in a hot shower/sauna . In less than two minutes I am completely soaked and dripping. It's all I can do right now to run the mowers every other day and keep the sheep from dying due to the worms. By the time I get the last cut done it is time to start the entire process over, in between rains that is.
Until these constant rains scale back I am pretty much stuck in simple survival mode keeping up with those two things along with my work responsibilities. Not much time for anything else, even weed eating has come to a complete halt now. We are getting hammered with rain almost as bad as last year during May and June when we were 22 inches over normal except this year it's in July and August. Usually it's dry as an old bone this time of year and I am able to get a lot done since the grass has almost stopped growing.
So for now I throw in the towel. Well no I am keeping the towel to wipe the sweat off but I am giving up on any hope of getting anything done on projects now.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
