Mushroom Weather

Thunder and lightning and heavy rain all Wednesday night. And the branches (creeks) were roaring so loudly it was hard to sleep. We did miss the hail some nearby areas had. And while our road was somewhat washed, and a lot of gravel swept away, it could have been worse. John and his tractor have made repairs.

Just now it's as if we were living in a rain forest--everything is growing, Growing, GROWING!  Pity the poor guys (John and Justin) who try to keep up with the mowing and weed-eating. But it's better than drought, for sure.

This is the growth season. Cut the grass and then do it again shortly.

It's a glorious time of year.

It's that time of year when one starts considering the possibility of paving the ground with concrete painted green. (As, so I heard back in the '60s, did aerospace engineer Werner von Braun.) Although, of course, it's far better to hire someone to do the mowing for you. Which I did, and have done for over two decades now.
