Rained out!

It has been a very wet Memorial Day weekend.

Yesterday afternoon, I realized I was going to have to forego my planned trip to the barn in favor of working. (I took a couple of days off last week, and as a result I'm having to play catch-up this weekend.) To make it more enjoyable, we went to a bookstore where I could get Internet access. While we were there, though, it rained and then hailed, making me glad to be indoors instead of at the barn.

It's been raining most of the day today, as well. It's just as well, because between work and plans with the family, there's no way I'd be able to get out to the barn anyway. I know Panama misses me — he was very eager to see me on Saturday when I returned my newly oiled saddle and bridle to the tack room, and rather disappointed when I left soon afterward — but he'll just have to wait a little bit longer!

How was your Memorial Day weekend? Did you get rained out, too? I hear wet weather was expected in a lot of places nationwide!

Went to a horse show, trap shooting at gun club, lunch with some old friends, worked in the garden planting sweet potatoes and potatoes again, since the last ones got drowned by too much rain.
the weather forecast was for rain for 4 days, so we didn't cut our hay. Well, it didn't rain a drop until 7 this evening so, we could have done hay. Now the hay wouldn't be as good, a little tough, darn! Now have no idea when it will be safe to cut hay.

Ooooo not in the NW! I think we had some of the nicest weather for Memorial day that I remember in a long time! We went to the beach for a day trip on Sunday!
