I am sitting here drinking my morning coffee in a patch of sunshine. Every couple of minutes a cloud darkens the couch and I am reminded again just how soggy and gray this past week has been for western North Carolina. My friend has a rain barometer and she recorded over 10 inches of rain this past week! Our driveway is a ruty mess, and our raised bed filled with bean plants has looked like a swimming pool more often than not.
But now a huge swatch of rain that was forecasted to bring even more rain and flooding seems to be narrowly missing us as it moves north. It looks like the Big Crafty show tomorrow might not be a wash-out after all!
