Stormy Day

With apologies to Edward Bulwer-Lytton and, more well known, Charles Schultz and Peanuts . . . it was a dark and stormy day. We had over 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm) of rain and wind gusts up to 38 mph (61 kmph), so we spent most of the day inside.

At least he had time to take a few photographs.

rain chains

Our rain chains were certainly busy with all of the rain.

not a day for man nor beast

Certainly not a day for man nor . . . Herd.
