Wonderful Wednesday

This is the view of Quechee Gorge (or “George,” as Bob/Lynne’s kids called it).  It is known as Vermont’s Little Grand Canyon, and is known as one of New England’s most popular natural wonders.  It is a looong way down there.  Trust me.  And there were lots of folks joining us on the bridge.  Very popular spot.


This is a popular (to me) local spot.  Sorry to scare you away this morning, Mr. Heron.  He is in the water on the R side, undaunted by the ducks swimming toward him.  He loudly told me off as he flew away.  Hmm, I apparently interfered with his breakfast:


Remember I said we got lots of rain yesterday?  Yep, the lake rose almost 2’ by mid-afternoon, and that rain washed all kinds of debris and mud from its shores.  Said debris plugged up some culverts here, flooding some roads…and a mudslide over the mountain closed a major road to Mayberry for several hours.  It was a mess!  Two (smart) kitties remained inside ALL day long…helping (?), in between naps.  Our neighborhood was without Internet all afternoon and evening, but at least we had electricity, thankyouverymuch.

We welcome the sunshine this morning to begin the drying out process.  Mother Nature rules, but I sure wish she would share this rain somewhere it is actually needed.  We are crying UNCLE!

Enjoy your Hump Day, and respect your Mother!

Yikes that's a lot of rain. We could have used some of that.

Two days ago the high was 90 and today it's predicted to be 70. What a change and we'll take it. It's been hot, hot and then hot.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the hard working babies. ♥♥♥

Thanks for sharing a few more beautiful pictures from your trip. We are glad you're home, though, or at least closer!
