The Rain has Finally Stopped

Ok, the bi-peds were happy that we received 4.15 inches of rain at the house this week thanks to Hurricane / Tropical Storm Fay, but the Herd has not been happy.  Walks in the rain.  A mudpit for a dog yard.  

The first day was cool.  The second day was ok.  By the third day, the dogs were in a full fledged “I think I can hold it longer please don’t make me go outside” mode.

Today is sunny and clear and most of the weekend is supposed to be that way.  Now we are just watching Gustav and Hanna to see if we will get some more rain next week.  Would be a big help against the drought and keeping a fire season from getting out of control.
