Soggy in the South

February 5, 2010

There sure seems to be a lot of rain lately.  Of course, I guess that’s better than the snow some places are getting.  But it’s awfully soggy around here.

Toby and I went for a walk to the mailbox, which means going by the pond.

Rain, pond and flood waters.

As usual when it rains for any length of time, the creek is backed up and overflowing across the road.

Also as usual, there is a big chunk of tree stuck in front of the openings of the culverts under the road.

Of course our farm collie Toby doesn’t mind traipsing through a little flood waters!

In fact, he considers it such a leisurely stroll, he even stops to get a drink.

Ummm, flood water is a nice treat!

And since HE is walking through flood waters, well he figures the human should too.

"Well, are you coming???"

Okay, okay, what’s it matter if I get cold, wet feet!  I’m coming already!
