It's Raining

                         
I'm getting off to a slow start this morning, having gotten up several times during the night with the thunder that was literally shaking the house.  Sadie the Dog made it clear around 2 AM that she was planning to spend the night either under my pillow or sprawled on top of me, certain that I would protect her from the storm.  It was a little like having a cinderblock on my chest for the night.

In any case, the rain has slowed to a steady pace, the theatrics have stopped, and I'm enjoying the opportunity to get some things done inside the house.  The forecast is for the rain to continue most of the day, which is great for the garden.  Sadie is passed out on the sofa (since she didn't sleep a wink all night), Frank is passed out in front of the television (he didn't sleep either) and I'm going to dig through the pile of papers on my desk; since it is about the same size as the eight yards of mulch from Saturday, it will take me a while. Perhaps I'll even change out of PJ's later today.........

  4. Portland, Oregon... already know for the rain, had the rainest April on record with 28 days of rain. Don't bring Sadie here on vacation in the spring.

  5. I am up tonight because the dog thinks it might thunder, as he can hear it rain. No thunder, but still not sleep. We will try it again in a few minutes. Good luck with the pile on your desk.
