We finished our Latin and left for the barn. On the way, it started sprinkling. When we turned on the road to go to the barn, the bottom fell out! Our horses were standing by the gate with their heads down and their backs turned to the blowing rain (that reminded me of a hurricane, actually) and were drenched! We brought them in and toweled them off, turning off their fans so they wouldn't get chilled.
When we went back to feed them supper, the side pastures were flooded! I guess that was the past three weeks' worth all rolled into one storm! You can see the water in the road in front of our house.
Speaking of the house, do you notice they are working on the roof? It's looking more like a real house every day! I've been climbing the ladder the framers made to get to the roof to get into my scrapbook room most afternoons (okay, not today) and I sit up there while the sun goes down, watching the birds eat the insects that come out at twilight. It's so exciting! Well, for me at least!
