I Can't Help But Think


"Hey!"


"How come every last thing that goes wrong around here is my fault?!?  What on earth happened now!?!"

I went in to the Wool House last night to get some of your wool to make Christmas ornaments for the Wool Festival and found it had flooded.


"Oh."


"Sorry about that."



"You're still going to use my wool though, right?"

Um...

We received 4 1/2" of rain yesterday morning on already saturated ground.  I posted a few flood pictures throughout the morning culminating with a pretty video of the "new water feature" in front of the Wool House.  Sigh...

I'd watched to make sure the water hadn't breached the door frame, thought all seemed good, was in and out of the wash room side all day, walked into the big room last night...and found it had flooded.  Maisie... (said like "Newman..." from Seinfeld ;-).

I can't help but think if I'd gone in there to get some of Liddy's or Bullwinkle's or Blossom's wool that I wouldn't have spent much of last night and most of today dealing with water damage... 

Just kidding, Maisie.  Sort of ;-).

Ugh. Don’t blame Maisie; she’s a force of nature, but not *that* powerful.

Michelle said...

So how DID it get in???

I love your water feature. Reminds me of better days when I was still a privileged married lady and not a widow stressing with financial woes! Thanks for cheering me up no end with all your sheep photos.

So sorry to hear about your flooding. The rainy season brings its surprises every year. Hope there is not too much cleanup for you and that it does not flood again. Lovely water feature too . . .

Well, dang! Mother Nature can turn that off any time ~ And Miss Maisie, although powerful, I don't think she would flood a place where HER wool is stored! Just saying...

Susan said...

I hope nothing was damaged beyond recovery/repair. That is a whole lot of rain! I love Maisie. She is a girl with attitude... :)

Terry and Linda said...

O! That is terrible! Although, we could sure use some of that rain!

Cheryl West said...

Poor Maisie saying it could not have been her. She never moved from her spot in the barn.

I hope that her fleece is salvageable and that you dry out quickly.

Loved the video and of course Maisie. Hope all is better and the sun came out

Maisie, Maisie. Would you? Could you? You’ll never tell. ;-)

You really need to write some kid's books and use your sheep, dog, cat and chicken photos. You are so good that this!!!

No one has control over natural climates. I want to tell you are blessed with such an adorable lamb. I love her pictures.

Thanks!

I'm sorry! What a pain to have that happen and to have to clean up the mess from all of that rain.
