Tropical Trap

Unless you live under a rock, you have probably seen, heard, or read the news of flooding in Texas because of Harvey.

The above video accurately represents the weather we had here for three days straight.

I am lucky because I am dry and my animals are dry. But, this all means not very much to say online about what Eli and I are working on, because we are working on nothing. Rain lingers in the area, and I am not sure how long everything will take to dry out. Or perhaps I should write a treatise on the finer arts of grazing in the mud and hand walking?

From that time when it was sunny and dry

Some places got their average annual rainfall in a matter of a few days. The wind is not doing anybody and favors. Further south and east, many roads are impassable; people and animals are stuck, walled in by an insane amount of water. Forecasters have had to alter how they visually represent rainfall totals to accommodate the unprecedented amounts.

Like I said, the subjects of this little blog are dry, and I feel very, very lucky.
