The afternoon the sky opened up and just dumped itself all over our end of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I mean…..it didn’t just rain…it was HOSING rain. BUCKETS! Cats & Dogs!
We have a large trash can on the side of the house, and it was full by the time the rain was done.
The Hubster wanted to go to town for some stuff, but when he got down the mountain, a guy stopped him and said the road was covered with water and it would be at least an hour or so before the run off slowed down and the road was crossable.
Where does the run off come from?
The creek that runs along the right side of the road, then crosses under the road through a culvert to the other side happens to be the direct path of water that flows over our water fall.
So instead of going to town, we went to the waterfall itself to see what was going on.
WOW! It was running rampant and muddy brown….what a difference from when Mickey was here just a few weeks ago!
Needless to say, there was no going to town for me! I stayed behind and sewed all day. Isn’t that what Labor Day weekend is about?
And to go along with the muddy brown of the Buck Mountain Waterfall:
My summer favorite! A creamy brown rootbeer float…while sewing at my creamy brown two toned 301A!
There will be more of the same going on today – in fact we had a huge sleep in. I can’t believe it’s 10 am already as I am writing this, but then again, that’s what Labor Day weekends are for too, right? Naps and Sleeping and Eating and Sewing and just BEING with no stress. Bliss!
Tonight there is a gathering of neighbors down at the pavillion for a BBQ of “Bring your own dinner” --- we may do it. I’d like to meet more folks from the area. But then again, I do like my away-ness as well.
I’ll keep you updated!
Remember, tomorrow morning, 7am Eastern Time. Labor Day Yard Sale, here on the blog!
