The wash-house ready for steel siding

                                                            October 28, 2012

     I snapped this picture early this morning. The wash-house stands ready for steel siding and roofing. We just have to wait on the weather. The rain from “Sandy” is supposed to soak us for the next week. We will wait and rest easy, because all is ready.

     The rains have been falling since last Friday evening. The ground is getting saturated. Our back pond is full. Water is spilling out the overflow for the first time since last May. Our drought is officially over and harvest everywhere near us, has ground to a halt.

     I stumbled around in the dark this evening looking at things that must be done before winter. I feel pretty good, but there are a few jobs that must be attended to before the puddles become ice.

     Our momma pigs are very pregnant. I think the upcoming storm coupled with the full moon, ought to be enough for them to deliver their babies. There is a damp chill in the air, making everything on the farm start to think about winter.

     I am hopeful for just a few more warm sunny days before the winter wallop that is sure to come. Some of my jobs will surely be done this week in the rain, but some will wait for better days…. hanging steel is one of those jobs 😮
