Rain, Rain,...

So I was really hoping for a chance to get out in the garden when I got home from the 'day job' today.  We still have a lot to do and I was planning on a wildly productive evening with weeds flying, seeds dropping, and the compost pile just getting all topsy-turvy. (OK - at maybe one bed cleared and maybe some carrots or beets in the ground.) 

But alas and alack 'tis not to be - again.  Below is a screen shot from our local weather radar taken a few minutes ago.  You're looking at Northern Indiana and we live on the western edge of the NE most county.  This is what most of the last week or so has looked like.  A gentle rain early in the morning, a thunder boomer in the afternoon, and something in-between all evening.  The green boxes to our West are flash flood warnings.  The yellow one is a severe thunderstorm warning.  A red one would be a tornado warning.

I know it will all get done because it always does, but I'd sure rather be out doin' it now.  De and I starting to rethink the planting plan and I'm sure we'll come up with something that will work.  I'll let you know what it is.  "Hope springs eternal", as the saying goes, and there's always tomorrow.  That is one of the blessings of summer.
