It’s been raining since last night, the sort of March rain that is two notches down from torrential but never lets up. It’s a marathon rain.
The good news is the basement isn’t flooded. The bad news is that there’s still some water getting in. The ugly? We’ve run out of ways to entertain the toddler indoors and have resorted to old Disney movies.
All the animals seem different in the rain. The pigs are joyous, and for once appear clean. The sheep resemble wet dogs, and shake the same way. The chickens look pathetic, and will probably need to be toweled off before we close them up for the night. Okay, maybe not all the animals – the ducks and geese are largely unphased.
Will is in the basement, building a new rabbit cage for our soon to be here bunnies and I’m shopping for a good toddler raincoat in preparation for the rest of March. And April.
At least the daffodils have finally bloomed. Spring is certainly on its way here in central VA.
