This is our pasture this morning at day break.  Almost completely flooded.  I got to move the rams through the water to a small pen near the barn to keep them from washing away. Below is the hay field across the street.  It is supposed to rain another whole day so this is just the beginning.  Wish us luck keeping the hay and critters safe.

    I hope your temperatures stay warm enough that all that water doesn’t turn to ICE!

    • Nancy, we get something called pineappled express here which causes warm temperatures, heavy rain, and snow melt in the mountains leading to flooding. Cold temps would better.

    wow. and the rain is supposed to keep on coming for another day or two. is that from the Samish rising,, or runoff from the hill above?

    Good luck. I will be thinking about you.

    • Thanks! We placed sandbags on the back ditch and unplugged the culvert under the road out front. The rain has quit for the moment so we might be OK. There is more flooding on the front of our property but so far no immediate threats to critters or hay.

    The weather is not behaving itself this year. Hope you are not throwing sand bags around in your condition. Will have to add the animals and hay to my prayer list – if this keeps up I may have to ask Father to hold a mass for you 🙂

    I heard the Weather Channel explaining that Pineappled Express this morning…..yuck! I would much rather have snow than rain and floods. I hope everything works out for you and the animals.

    • I am not sure which is worse but will say flooding stinks! It is still raining hard but the flooding doesn’t seem to be worsening. Now it is getting dark so harder to do much. We do not the Pineapple Express here, that’s for sure.

    We went through our wettest year ever here, and it is not fun. Good luck. I hope you and the animals and the food supply are all safe.

    What does “in your condition” mean?

    A few weeks ago we were dealing with really cold conditions – it went to -20 celsius. That was a LOT of work, keeping the animals safe and happy. It’s not fun going through some of Mother Nature’s extremes, is it!

    good luck – hope it dries out soon.

    • “In your condition” is referring to back problems I have been having.
      Those are really cold conditions. The lowest we have had to deal with is 0 degree F.
      Things are drying out and our hay and critters are fine! Now we’ll see what comes next…
