Today after countless days and inches of rain, the sun is shining. Along with the sun comes a strong wind, which they tell us to be wary of. The ground is saturated and the tree roots have nothing to grip hold of and so they may topple in the wind. Not much comfort when your house is surrounded by tall pine trees.
But we are happy because we did not flood though our brook is high. And now that the brooks are full, we can get snow. This is what Allen’s grandmother told me last year, “It can’t snow until the brooks are full.” We can’t figure out why this is so but it seems to be true. I need to find an old farmer to ask.
