The Weather Outside is Frightful...

This "pond" forms in our front yard after a hard rain and after what seems like 14 long days of December rain. No, that's not a true calculation but it sure feels like it has been raining every day this December. In truth we may have had 2 or 3 days of a little bit of sunshine.

Our driveway is fit for mud loving swine.

Our road is totally unwalkable even with my Muck boots on.

(My spell check says unwalkable isn't a word. I disagree,)

See the rain drops falling down?

Seems another "pond" is forming by my gardens.

Even the dogs don't want to go out. I'm not even sure if that's Ike or Bear. The other dog is in the barn by Steve.

This is our backyard. It has a natural creek of sorts that travels through. But we don't usually see the water.

I think I will close the blinds, crank up the Christmas music, sing Let It Snow at the top of my lungs and start on my Christmas baking.

Speaking of crank, we talked to a friend (he wasn't cranky) last night who has lived up here all his life and he says he's never seen this much rain in the Upper Peninsula in December. He runs a business and he says it has certainly played a large part on the disposition of his customers. 

Joy to the World...
