Can you believe we had an earthquake in the Midwest this morning?? A 5.2 earthquake hit in southern Illinois & was even felt in Des Moines, Iowa which is only 100 miles south of us. Wow, we just can't believe it. Below is the link to the news story:
We haven't heard if anyone in our local area felt the earthquake or not. We were just getting up about the time it hit but we don't think we noticed anything. We have a rock quarry only about 1 mile from us & they blast dynamite all of the time so we're kind of use to the house shaking. Mama said she was up but was too groggy to even notice if the house rattled.
We have had rain for 3 days straight now & this is getting really old fast. It just pours & pours & pours. Our yard has water sitting everywhere & we even have a 3rd pond where water settles. Mama isn't too happy about it either, cause every time we come in from going potty, our legs & feet are soaked & we track mud EVERYWHERE!!
Here is the rain pond:
Here are our two ponds & they have been flooding all day. The water then runs to our fence & just past it and creates another huge pond of water. At least that pond is on the scout's property. The wood ducks sure like this weather though & we've seen them in the ponds off & on all day.
This weather sure isn't good for Snickers & I because Mama has to come up with things to do to keep her busy. And ya know what she did last night???? She butched ME Butchy! Yep, she stripped & trimmed my hair, see:
All of my curls are gone!
Now she's talking about grinding my nails too.
Could you do those things to a face like this????
