    If you can't smell them yet, then they probably aren't too bad. But you best find them soon!

    3.6 inches of rain last night and into today at 5 in the evening, still up to 1.5 inches could be on the way before it moves to the coast.
    Bunny, I do hope that most of this mess is done before it gets to you guys.

    Me, too. We've had maybe an inch of rain today, looks like we'll get a bit more overnight. I'm mostly concerned about the fair - in the past, we've had young rivers run through the tents when it rains like this. Parts of the tent were already rather wet, this could get really messy.

    I bought naughty pepper seeds in spring and waited so long for it to be warm enough to plant - I forgot all about them. Maybe they will germinate next year if I remember.

    I also put things in the micro wave and in the 3-4 minutes to cook them - forget until I find them days later. Worst is when I just go down to check my email and BYC, and come upstairs hours later to a dark kitchen and doors unlocked because I forget to go back upstairs. I hate when I do that. I need a light on timer or something.

    We had a beautiful 70's day no rain but, I missed it sleeping from am to 4:30 pm. Which meant I also missed calling for the bus for Tuesday, which will also be 70. Wednesday will be the last 70 and then we take a dive.

    Last year the second week of November was in the upper 20's. Our November ended up being colder than a usual January - plus we had 82.9 inches of white loveliness starting after Xmas and through a late spring.

    Morning everyone. We woke up to find out our water pump is dead. Nothing is open for a couple more hours so no water until this can be replaced. DH is not having a fun morning. [​IMG]

    Scott, Bunny hope you all don't get much more rain.

    I hope DH jumped the pressure switch just to be sure the pump is dead?
    just thinking what normally goes wrong with my water pump.
    Good luck.

    Oh, man, people who don't have wells don't know the fun they miss out on, eh?

    At the barn where I worked, we had fire ants that kept getting into the pump house. I treated all the mounds I could find around it, don't know why I couldn't seem to get rid of them. Anyway, for some reason they seemed attracted to the electricity running through the switch, or something; they would pile up on the contacts and eventually stop the flow of the current. I impressed the heck out of the barn owner one morning - when I got there, he told me we didn't have any water, and was thinking he was going to have to call a plummer. I turned off the power to the well, went out to it, popped the cover off the switch, and started scraping the ant carcasses off the contacts. When it was all cleaned off, I turned the power back on and - ta-dah! - we had water! (Who'd-a-thunk-it, the woman knows something useful!)
