Oof. We have gotten a ton of rain in the last few days. We’ve had brief breaks between storms, but it really feels like we’ve had 4+ inches of rainfall so far (and it’s currently raining, as I type). I can’t really complain, though. We just entered Stage 2 water restrictions, which means we can only water on our specified day and at a specified time. Hopefully this rain will help! We had a pretty crazy storm a couple of nights ago. It dropped hail the size of nickels (luckily it was really sporadic, so no damage) and a ton of rain. Luckily, it wasn’t as bad as areas further out. They had tennis ball sized hail and there was even a small tornado that briefly touched down (thankfully, it didn’t sound like anyone was hurt). Yesterday’s rain and today’s rain has been a little less volatile.
In other news: Paul has been making the most of this rainy day. Since he can’t do yard work, he’s been doing some work around the house. He’s already replaced the insides of one of the toilets and he’s currently switching out the faucets in our bathroom sinks. He’s also got a new light for the entryway that he’ll switch out at some point. I’m so grateful for all of his hard work that keeps our house looking nice! As for me, I got the second round of my COVID shot last night. So far, other than a rather sore arm, I haven’t had any other side effects. Joseph had a good week at school, and Abigail lost another tooth!
Bonus Video: the light show from the other night. Our trash cans were on the porch because the next day was trash day, but we didn’t want them to blow down the street or tip over during the storm.
