Sheep Shearing Postponed...
7:15 CLOUDY! But it was cloudy yesterday...not suppose to rain today.
7:20 Honey it looks like it is going to rain..not suppose to rain today.
7:25 5 minute down pour.
Not enough to actually benefit the garden, or fruit trees but enough to cancel shearing today! It has been a dust bowl around here for 2 weeks. We would have bought the sheep in the gray barn if we had any idea it was going to rain. We spent yesterday evening setting up a pen outside so we could do the shearing in the red barn (a much nicer barn). Well even the best laid plans can be brought to a halt by Mother Nature!
Rescheduled for Monday morning.
Side Note: You do not shear WET sheep!
Bright Side: The alfalfa seed that was drilled in last night got a little damp!
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to
ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young
