Well, the creek spilled over a bit, but never made it to the house. The good thing about the flooded basement is that eventually, it being an old house with a stone foundation and a dirt floor, the water kind of goes away on its own. And the furnace now seems fine. Yay! Still, I'm not sad to see the hind end of this storm. I hear it is supposed to get sunny and 50ish this weekend - do I dare to plant my potatoes - *finally*?
To the extent that one can judge based on a rapidly changing environment, this does seem to be the climate my region has - very wet, wet springs and early summers that may be warmer, but don't necessarily mean a longer growing season on that end. But who knows - the old saying about New England weather, if you don't like it, wait 10 minutes, applies to climate change.
I hope you are all well - and I'm more than willing to consider mailing some rain off to any of you who need it.
