This is what things looked like yesterday afternoon after about 3 inches of rain. This is the Bag Lady's garden:
Here's the rain gauge (it may be hard to see the little red marker that floats on top of the water in the gauge)
This is the bottom of the Bag Lady's lawn (the little streaks in the picture are the snow that started to fall):
This was approximately half an hour later:
And this was later still:
The snow was very wet and heavy:
This is what it looked like this morning:
The rain gauge this morning:
The Rancher went out this morning and measured the snow on the back of the Bag Lady's truck... almost 6 inches.
And the forecast is for more rain/snow to fall later today!
It has affected the power - the Rancher's sister lives about an hour north and her electricity went off yesterday afternoon around 4 pm, and still isn't restored.
It was very dry here and the moisture was badly needed, but sheesh, it didn't have to come all at once!
This is a long weekend in Canada, and traditionally the first weekend to go camping.... the Bag Lady is just as happy to hunker down at home, thankyouverymuch.
