So yesterday we had quite a few storms. At about 2:45 the rain just began pouring down while I was at work. As usual, I discovered my drivers side window agape after the worst of it had passed. Stupid rain.
Anyway, since the little monsters hate thunderstorms, they were worked up quite a bit when I got home. But the sun was starting to shine, so I decided a quick investigation of the creek was the best way to let them forget about that. We don't usually go down after heavy storms, but yesterday was an exception as I wanted to check out the damage. Here's a few of the pics.
The creek was more like a river. We'd never been down there when it was that high, and I was a bit worried I'd see Lola scooped up and swept away(she's the only one crazy enough to try and swim in it).
I dumped four photos into one frame of the damage around our area. There wasn't anything crazy, just limbs broken from trees here and there. The one entire tree on the top right of that photo must have come down stream 'cause it wasn't there yesterday. Pretty powerful stuff when water gets moving.
Also, on a fairly entertaining side note, I made cup cakes from scratch! Pretty interesting. As I said to Ash, "they definitely look like boy cup cakes," as the icing was a bit rough around the edges. Chantal is the expert cup cake maker, and if you haven't seen her post about the ones she made for Mothers Day, check it out. They were out of this world. Overall, for my first try, they were an oustanding success.
I'll have photos tomorrow from the Gnats game. I'm in section 119 with Fitzy. So, if you happen to see us on the TV, we'll likely be the ones passed out and drooling all over ourselves. Unfortunately, the game coincides with the first day of our CSA! Arghh! Pictures and all will be posted tomorrow. Very exciting, everywhere, all over the world.
"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb."
