It appears the recent rains that caused so much flooding nearly all over the midwest is past and those poor people who had their homes and businesses nearly ruined can try to get back to a life again. We were blessed at Marr Haven, there were several floods and road washouts in Michigan but the closest to us was about 20 miles. Our land is quite sandy with no large rivers nearby so although we had some of the torrential rains,none of it caused damage.
In fact, quite the contrary, the 5 acre pasture that the horses are usually rotated to by now, grew so much grass that my DH decided to mow and bale it. He thought it might make 15 bales and at the price of everything now, that would be worth the time, gas and effort. Well he got 30 nice bales. The horses will be happier this winter, although they wondered why they couldn't have it now.
