We have things to do and places to go and a whole lot of things to get accomplished. But most of those things and places have to wait because of crippling mud we are dealing with right now. I have experienced all kinds of weather in the short period of time I call my life. I have lived through tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, floods, and drought. But I have never before encountered mud on the scale we have now.
Driveways and dirt roads are filled with deep ruts, paved roads are buckling and getting all sorts of eruptions and potholes because of all the moisture that has no where to go. Since we can't do anything else we have been catching up on various odd jobs around our little corner of the earth.
Cleaning up tree limbs and burning them occupied part of a day. The children were all impressed with the bonfire.
There's only a certain amount of baking a person can do before you really don't want to see another cooking spoon for a while.
So now there is really nothing left to do except find a cozy spot and wait until the mud starts drying up and we can continue with our life.
