I just want to bury my head under the covers today. I can’t bear to watch the news or read about what’s going on in Washington DC. We got about two inches of rain in our own backyard last night and this morning, with another three inches predicted to come. I worked outside all day yesterday, preparing the barn and the corral for this deluge. So far, the stalls are dry and cozy. The corral and pasture and drainage ditches are flooding. We’re only halfway through the storm.
I’ve been outside twice already to shovel mud so the water can keep draining. Now that I’ve changed into dry clothes for the second time in four hours, I am taking a moment to reflect. There seems to be some financial parallels here. We keep digging ourselves out, but the economic weather is continuing to drown us. I’m crawling under a blankie on the couch to hide until I get my optimism back. See you when the sun comes out!
