When It Rains: Parts I & II




Grandma J loves nothing more that a nice strong rain, falling from the heavens to quench the thirst of Mother Nature's green acres. Yeah, I made that up....




Remember how happy Grandma J was when Mother Nature blessed this sweet little blooming weed, rescuing it from a tragic painful shriveled up death? Of course, flooding the whole friggin' swamp, previously referred to as The Spa, was part of the whole package. And, we survived!

Just as Grandma J was singing the praises of all things holy and good, Mother Nature decided to unload her whole kit and caboodle on the whole friggin' swamp.....







Isn't this special?? The water was flush with Grandma J's patio. Did Grandma J ever tell you her patio was only six feet deep?





Nope, she wouldn't lie about something that important. Looky here! This view is from inside the kitchen door! I think I'm swim on over and see if the neighbor has any extra Haagen Daz.





This is Huey, the man who does it all. Huey thought he was going home because after all it was only 8:30 P.M. Silly Huey....who would have thought the wind would decide that this was a good time to flatten the flag pole?

Unbelievable.

Well, in better news, I purchased a replacement crab for you from the Gwynn's Island market today. I won't be able to send it out until my day off later this week, but Mr. Crab can't wait to meet you. (He's a bit scared of JJ after what happened to his brother.)

Oh. My. Good. Heaves. I am glad you are still alive and thriving despite the flood. And I am very glad for Huey : )

Gah!
Who would have thought you'd have all that rain while Seattle simmered at 100 degrees!

Hope they get the swamp drained!
