Hunkering down in a storm

Get out the rain barrels.

I sat on my patio during that dumper and watched my rain barrel fill up within 5 minutes.

Hey, is the drought over yet? Or what!

Weather man wasn’t kidding, we finally had a couple of days of good dumping rain.  I didn’t have my rain barrels in place, but managed to drag one out and put it under our main downspout. I hadn’t had time to clean it, and of course the spigot got plugged, and before we knew it the water was pouring over like a fountain.

And damned if that chicken wasn’t ready to go on the grill, which my husband had  all heated up when the first rain drops starting falling.

Looks like  the grill could use a good washing off anyway.

My husband assured me the rain was not going to ruin our parade, and he was right.

The salt rub gives it the nicest color, and the meat is sweet, juicy and tender.

Of course the bread made out okay tucked into the house oven.

"I just need a few more minutes!"

“I just need a few more minutes!”

Sourdough Bob never lets me down. 

Today we get a break, time to go out and clean up the tree debris. I need to get my torch out, the weeds are coming in like gangbusters.
