Yes, I know it is Easter time and Facebook and blogs are filled with words remembering the significance of this week. Yes, I heartily agree with all of this, but, no, this is not a spiritual post. Just a reference.
Noah built the ark, and the rains started. Last night I was thinking of pulling out the plans for a boat, just didn’t know how quickly I could get it made.
The rains started yesterday afternoon, as expected. The winds blew, the rains came and stayed. It was cozy inside. We donned our slickers and took the dog out a couple of times for a wet walk.
Last evening we looked at the pond. It’s not a particularly lovely pond anyhow, more like a culvert with water in it. There is an area of brush at one end of the pond, the brush stands at least ten feet in height. Last evening the brush was half covered in water. The pond was almost full. The roads were full, as was our front yard.
Now, I know the house is raised just a bit for times like these. I understand that. My concern in all of this? The three alligators who live in the pond. Two of them are pretty little and I half expected to look out this morning to see them on my porch.
But, as the sun attempted to shine today, I looked out to puddles, a pond that had drained and no gators on my porch. So, now we are waiting for the next round of storms and again we will watch the pond.
Have a great Easter weekend. Thanks for stopping by, DAF
