Rain, Rain, Go Away…

According to the news this morning, St. Augustine has gotten almost 8 inches of rain in the past 48 hours, with alerts of flash flooding.

I snuck out to feed the horses during a lull.  I put on my rain boots and sloshed out to the barn.  Kobi’s stall is flooded.  His normally large stall has been shrunk to about a 4′ x 4′ area where he’s not pastern deep in muck.

I keep telling myself that all of this rain is good for my grass, the blackberry bushes, and all of the blueberry crops…but did we really need to get ALL of the rain within 2 days?

Think dry thoughts today!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.

    Good morning dear, Wow we have continual rain, but the snow is gone! My flowers outside have just opened, they just want to hold up their little heads, but too wet! We are fine, busy—it is rummage sale season, the best reason ever to get Friday taken care of here at work. I am working on my Christmas theme stuff, and sales are my best bet. Otherwise, just plain busy with life. Later, Love Aunt Bonnie
