I think I need...

...a change of scenery.

In my part of Oregon, March brought record-breaking precipitation amounts.  We received 8 inches of precipitation in the form of rain:
hail:
...and snow in that one month alone:
Houses were underwater:
So were roads:
Our year-to-date rainfall - as of today - is 18.67 inches.  This has made us very muddy:
Straw is our new best friend...:
as it helps to keep our feet dry:
The boys think I need to get away:
They don't have to tell me twice:
I'm very excited. :-)

  2. And I bet I know just where you're off to.

    That place far south where dogs give smooches, and pigs impersonate country singers, and the ears are mostly long.

    I hear she even cleaned house.
    Have fun.

  7. I agree. You needed to get away! But what about the rest of us? Me? We had the same amount of hail, snow, rain. The blossom at the end of your post is a nice thought, but no consolation. Consider the drops on the purple petals my Oregonian tears.....

  14. I hope you're heading for some sun and relaxation. I had no idea it had been that wet in Oregon. Hope it will be sunny and dry and that you take plenty of pictures.
