Oh this spring weather...
This is what it looked like a couple of days ago even though the forecast had been for rain, hail and snow to low levels.
Well it did arrive and although we didn't get snow here the temps have dropped dramatically and it feels like winter again. This is how it looked a couple of minutes ago from one of my front windows.
A lake is forming in the yard.
And the storage bin began to float...
...so my GKB had to go out and rescue it.
It doesn't look like a lot of water but it is!
A pot of soup is cooking on the stove - winter comfort food :)
If only I could I'd send this rain to California.
Well things got worse after I had written this. Flooding, shops, businesses and some homes sandbagged. Some people were told to prepare to evacuate, roads have been cut off and trees down as well as slips. And our power was out for a couple of hours. Apart from that all we have had is a leaking window. Thankfully we had our roof fixed back in February otherwise I think it would have been a different story. It was quite a weather bomb with more to come apparently.
