Well, first the month started with snow. And now the turn of the calendar has brought rain. And more rain. And more rain. It has rained for 2 days straight now. (or at least it seems like that!). It's been a nice gentle rain - the perfect summer rain. It would have been really great if it had come in July or August. Not that we want to turn away any moisture, especially with how dry the summer and fall (to date) has been. But after slogging through mud to sort calves, a little bit of dryness would be nice. We won't say that too loud though as our neighbours to the south are still in dire need of water. Let's just hope that the top layer of dirt has time to dry out before it freezes. Otherwise there will be a nice layer of ice over everything all winter long.
