Happy Easter 2011 - and it rained the day before

Happy Easter 2011
...and it rained the day before

Well, I still have three chocolate Easter Bunnies, so I 'hid' them on the top of my dresser so I would 'find' them in the morning...


This was the day it started to rain, over night, and rained, and rained, and rained, all day!

Before it rained, we had some nice iris in bloom...


Between the cabin and the iris, we are going to have a 30 inch sewer main dug in the next few weeks. The stakes give some idea... it goes clear south, past Allison's subdivision, and up to the top of the hill... can we see the water tower up there from here?


Well, this view looked a little different late this afternoon!


And, straight out, toward the iris... Isn't this fun!  ;-) Iris on the right...


And, on the north, down the hill to the sewer main hookup locations, beyond the vehicle storage area...


They are suggesting they can go by Let's big pine, but the three smaller ones farther down will likely be sacrificed. We wonder if they know that water runs down here like this, routinely. Can you imagine how that ditch (filled back in and seeded) will look if another one of these 'gully-washers' (when, not if, sorry!) comes along?!?!?!  ;-)

Well, what will Easter Day bring... likely more rain!  ;-)
