We're living in the tropics!

Last week it rained - sprinkles on Monday, an inch on Tuesday, two and a quarter inches on Wednesday, and another 4 tenths on Friday. Not only that the temperatures hit 90° and you know what that does to the humidity! This week has been even worse. We had 4 tenths on Sunday and another inch and a half last night along with high winds. Temperatures have been over 90 and last evening after the winds, our electric went out. It ended up being off for almost 10 hours. Thank goodness the temps went down a little after the storm went through but neither of us slept very well. I also had to empty the refrigerator and freezer into 2 big coolers with ice blocks so I didn't lose anything. Today was hot again and I am SO tired of all the rain! We still haven't replaced the dryer and it's so hard to dry clothes when it's either raining or the humidity is sky-high.

And of course, the grass doesn't stop growing just because it's wet - just the opposite. If it keeps up, we'll have to bale hay! I tried to mow the back lot this afternoon and got the mower stuck. Had to wait until Jim got home to get the other mower out and pull me up the hill. That put an end to the mowing for today. Hopefully, next week will be better.
