Crazy year - What a long, strange trip it's been.

Last August, we set out on the road for the East coast. That was fun, we spent time in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut. We drove back to North Dakota to welcome our third grandchild into the world in December then headed west to California.

While in Cali, we took a break and flew to DC for TAPS. When we finally left California, we drove a new route that took us down highway 66 and sopped at the Grand Canyon. new sights for us and lots of fun.

You don't need a weatherman to know.....

The weather here since we got back has been very disappointing. a couple of days were great, but since then, it's been all rain, wind, and cold. The expected high today, July 1st is 55 degrees. Really? the winds have been well over 25 mph and raining on and off for days.

The farmers are in a bad way since the fields are being flooded. There is a lot of concern in the Devils lake basin because entire farms are going under acres at a time.

I can't work on the yard which had become overgrown since we were gone, can't do repairs and general upkeep on the house in the rain. Hopefully, this will begin to settle down before it's time for us to leave again.

Just sayin'...
