Rain, mud and landslides
We are still working on drying our coffee beans out, but there is not much to show right now, since it has been raining almost non-stop for the last week. This is very unusual for this time of year. The average rainfall in November is about 15 inches and we are on track to get 23 inches! Thankfully it is not cold outside, it is just very wet. We live on a sloped hill, so it is just slippery and muddy. All of this water has taken out some roads, caused a few landslides and some flooding in areas. We were actually going to go to the beach the other day when I saw a post about one of the roads to the beach was taken out, so we are making new plans.
The video link below is normally a pretty cool waterfall, but it is now a monster mix of a waterfall, landslide, danger-zone...granted, this video is a little ways from us, but it was the only cool example I had today to put on here.
The blog page does not allow me to post videos without paying more money, so I have put a video (12 seconds) on my Google Drive. Waterfall
The good news is that I have had a little time to get things done in the house this week. The bad news is that all of the water and chaos is causing the power company to work a little harder to keep everyone's power up. Our power was out for 5 hours this morning. My husband even boiled water to run through our coffee maker as a bribe to me I am sure. I am just not sure what the bribe is for yet...but I am still suspicious. :)
The other bad thing about all of this wetness is the puppies.
1. If the rain stops for awhile, they like to go play in the mud and then come in and get everything all muddy.
2. If it is still raining during potty time they do not want to go outside, they actually refuse to go outside and are good at forgetting every command they know, but great at whining and looking at me like it is my fault that it is raining...it is a huge battle of wills...thankfully I win these wars and they are becoming shorter and shorter. I can get them outside, but I cannot make them do anything once we get out there...haha.
