thats the big problem here , in my yard under the swing set it is a dirt patch. with all the rain we have had it has not dried up in weeks , the dirt patch is growing algae

At the kennels my old boss would have me take a little hoe and dig a little channel and direct the water away from standing. Say the word hoe to any of the kids around here and they giggle and have no idea what you are talking about. IT will help it dry out faster and not grow eewie stuff.

We're expecting to get between 10 and 14 inches of rain. Should be fun!

My vet dropped off some Banamine and Buscopan for me to administer should either of them colic. I don't feed grain, so that helps a little bit.

Right now, the sky is blue, the sun is shining, and there's hardly a fluffy white cloud in the sky. It's actually quite a beautiful day.

Sounds awful but also awesome. You all stay safe. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.

We're about to start final preps to our barn.

I'm starting to get nervous now because of the entire uncertainty of this storm. Louisiana weather people forecasted it to it Louisiana all along, even before the models predicted Iif to do so. And even though it's just fluctuating between ending up as a Cat 1 and Cat 2, there is the belief that it is just a perfectly placed storm to cause lots of damage.

Oh, and for those unaware, it will hit land on the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. How's that for irony.

This storm is starting to remind me of Ike, the hurricane that hit us a few years ago. It was slow moving, and huge. It was only a #2, but the storm surge was devastating. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
