July 4 brought on the blast for sure

THE BLAST of RAIn, or Flood almost in my neighborhood. WEATHER DUDES called it a dry day, but geeee, not at my house, just as i was thinking it was time to get busy cutting grass, the deluge hit ,,, My Pond dam is REALLY worse, the water off the road cut some major ruts in the driveway ( i have called the county to see if they will take a look at the nonexisent culvert and drainage.) I tried a few years back to get on a state program to have the pond repaired, but i don't own enough property or am not a farm I think. THEY did look at it and made recoommendations that I can not afford at the moment. SO here are a couple pictures of the DRY day in Mississippi. OH, im going to have to redo the dog fence in one corner becuase the pond is caving in around the edges because of the dam. PEOPLE do a lot of WANTING on the recycle sites and craigs, wonder can i want a volunteer with a tractor or bulldozer to work on it, BUT if they don't do some engineered thinking, it will just blow out again, when a DRYGULLYWASHER DAY falls out of the sky.
ON a more positive note, the tomatoes are ON the make, and the wild turtles are still happy, although a couple were washed out thru the runoff, but are safely back in the wild pond. LOL

Have a great day!!!
the best is yet to come,,,,

What a mess. I hear ya about all the wants. Amazes me when they keep posting what they want and not what they have to keep out of a landfill.

I need that guy with a bulldozer too :)
