rain, snow, hair straightening and an ATV

I feel like we've been living on the planet Venus in Ray Bradbury's All Summer in a Day because it has been raining non-stop for four fucking days.

Now, normally I like the rain, especially since we have a hole-free roof nowadays, but good grief, this is a bit much. However, I still love some good weather.

We were told by our mailman that he's never seen rain like this here before.

Flooding everywhere!


The Clinch River normally only rises to below that first tree line.

No parking today, folks.

Danger, danger, Will Robinson!

Looks like we're not going much of anywhere today.

Then, it finally stopped raining. And started snowing. But I will take snow over cold rain any day of the year. (Let me be absolutely clear that WARM rain is always welcome in my book. Which is one of many reasons why we moved to the South.)

Like, giant 3" diameter flakes. I'm not kidding!

All the above snow pictures were all taken within an hour of each other.

Also, Clyde Dog was made for this kind of weather.

Lastly, I straightened my hair the other day for the first time in eons so I took a picture for posterity's sake.

That is all.

Oh, wait, one more thing: we're picking up this bad boy tomorrow, woo hoo!

  1. Boo and hiss on cold rain! Whew, those were some flood pics. Where was that road that is all flooded in relationship to your place? Did you drive through that mess? Virginia Lee chose one of the coldest days of the year to visit, but we had fun.
