When It Rains It Floods

*Warning* The following photographs have nothing to do with this post. Please enjoy them anyway. 

 When it rains here it doesn't just pour, it comes a complete monsoon. Our internet service has been out for the past few days and we didn't realize how much we rely on it out here in the boondocks. Movies, ipods, e-mail, and the instant weather report have all become essential. 


Also, the oven quite working, the pool hose sprung a gargantuan leak, and the hydraulic lever on the tractor doesn't work. 


While moving a piece of man furniture into the house, the guys tore off the kitchen cabinet door. 


It has been quite the weekend! On the flip side of this craziness the bees seem to be thriving as well as the two kids who reside at the farmette. Yes, and the adults have survived as well.

  4. Isn't it crazy how much we rely on all things electronic and when they are "off" for a short bit of time, we almost don't know what to do with ourselves. I like all the conveniences, having started out the beginning of my married life with no electricity or phone for many years. I have done without but I would rather not now. But it did teach me to be frugal with what I have.

  12. Oh WOW, it has been pouring aroung there. Yes, until we are without the internet none of us want to admit how much we depend on it.
    So happy to hear that the bees, the kids and you are surviving this little glitch.
    Loved the pictures of your daughter and her team. We are spending much of our time these days at the ballpark too. Fun,fun.
