Rain, Rain.....

Living in NM we don't usually get a huge amount of rain every year. Going into Sept. we were still below normal for the year. So, I usually don't get real excited if the weather forcast says it's going to rain - here, that usually means we get enough to make dust stick to cars. My goats have been chanting "rain, rain go away come again - NEVER" this week as we have gotten a lot - really, we might have hit normal. Here are the babies peeking out of the hut to see if the rain has stopped.
And the adults, standing under the lean-to checking out the puddles.....which there are a lot!!!!! They do not like getting their princess hooves wet you know!
Some of the rest of us LOVE it when it rains here. If we don't get any more rain tonight or tomorrow (it is in the forcast) this will all be dry by tomorrow probably.
I see that starting Sat we should get sunshine again. I, for one, will be sad to see the rain go but I know my goaties will be so happy when it dries up.

Awww, look at all your goaties peeking out from their shelters.
You need a bridge to walk over those mini-lakes, eh?

We got dumped on all day today and last night, too. We don't typically get rain all day, just for an hour or two. We had rivers running down our hill to the barn. And everything is so muddy and slippery...and stuff is greening up finally. Not so dusty.

Of course, now it feels like Fall. At night it gets down into the low 40's. And during the day, barely even 60 degrees. Brrr!

I wonder if this is going to be a serious winter, not like our mild winter last year.
