If I can find 'em

I asked the husband, when's the last time you checked the garden to see if there's anything to eat in there?

I think I might have some tomatoes in there, says he, if I can find em. I thought I'd see if I could build me a raft or maybe put water wings on the tractor, and maybe take the chain saw, to whack my way through the weeds. Might bring my shotgun case I run across a alligator or a water moccasin.

How 'bout onions, we have any onions left?

I don't know, I would need scuba gear for that.

Well if you find any tomatoes get as many as you can carry and I'll maybe can some.

Okay, I will, if I can find 'em.

Enough already. We're drowning out here.

Your farm is about under water?

The dirt we pulled out when we dug the pig pasture pond is all piled on the banks surrounding it. This morning at first light I looked out and all the pigs and both dogs were perched on top of the mounds. Laid out like so many soggy carcasses.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's completely under water but you'd be hard pressed to find a spot out there right now that isn't holding some amount of water. I've been listening to Elvis runing back and forth under the window doing his chicken patrol. (Keeping the roamers off the back porch) Splish splash splish with each step.

This picture was taken this time last year, most of the pasture looks like this or worse right now.

sHan! That is no exager...eggater...that is no joke. I have puddles out there that you could float a canoe in.

It has been raining for four days straight. Sarasota got 10.5 inches last Wednesday I think Fred said. He just dumped the gauge and it had two inches in it. He just dumped it yesterday morning. May not sound like a lot but it has to be dumped every day.

The river is way up. This time last year Jill put a note in am empty pepsi bottle and tossed it in. It turned up about fifty miles down stream. We just got the call last week. Some guy working on the roads found it. Time to do it again. See how far it can get this time. With the current and the water as high as it is, it could end up in the everglades.

I just saw on national news where a dam is in danger of breaking somewhere in Florida. Hope the rain lets up soon.
