Mrs Bale needs this warming cup of tea. Since Tuesday, we've had nine inches of rain.
The ground is soggy. Our stream has jumped its banks
Some roads were closed. Today the rain has stopped, and it is cloudy with sunshine peeking through every so often. Every day has been dark. I awoke one morning at nine, thinking it was seven. Our cellar had a bit of rain that came through the fieldstone walls, but the new cement cellar in Margaret and Matthew's house is dry as can be! (update coming soon on The Making of a Home)
