Hi, Betsy!

Having been raised in the Willamette Valley,
I can imagine exactly how it must have looked.

We are in our second day of dry and already
the mud is beginning to congeal into something
resembling solid ground. Pastures will be lush
and I don't worry about the geese...they reside
across the road where they have 2 large ponds
for their base.

Thanks, Betsy, for dropping in and leaving
your note. I appreciate it very much.

It has been an unusual deluge, all the fields in the willamette valley are looking like lakes, we have a lot of closed roads due to high water. Today was nice and it looks better up here. Hope your fields make it and if they do the geese stay off it!!

The animals are already enjoying the
nice green grass. Hope they don't use
it all up before Spring.

Thanks, Gingy, for looking and leaving
me a note.

Thanks Lori and James.

No, we are high a dry...sort of. It's
just washing through here. No danger of
high water on our place.

Thank you Heidrun, Elaine and Duane.

We always need the rain to get that nice
lush view. We just don't need it in four
days time. We think the seeding we did
just before the rains in our pasture are
probably all washed away. Can't really
tell yet.

I couldn't upload these shots yesterday (12-2)
as we lost internet connection until late last
night. See my "Stormin' Mornin'" shot for the
updated rain amounts that Silver posted for me.

It's always amazing to see the green this time of year when we are soooo brown. Hope you dry out quickly.
