Rainy Daze

The weather has been crazy, though in all honesty, I sort of like it because it hasn't been painfully hot and the rain has been regular enough to keep the garden happy but not so regular as to ruin the day. Does that make any sense?

There have been a few days of heavy downpour and flood warnings, but nothing has been as bad as they feared. The other night it did rain pretty hard and we had bad winds, enough to knock the power out. It was evening and luckily dinner was made, so we ate by candlelight and then watched a DVD on the laptop. We lose power fairly frequently but it's sort of like camping, you just make do without electricity, like our forefathers did. With the exception of our first year here, we usually get the power back within a few hours, and that was the case this time. It forces you to slow down and just hang with the family, which is never a bad thing.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Karen Boyce for the pic.
