when this works just as well!
The troops went out the door this morning wrapped up tight in their hooded jackets and boots. Since I get to stay home today -- I think that a small boat for me might be necessary at some point. In a little bit, I'll take another picture from the same vantage point on the porch -- and you can tell me if I should head for higher ground! :-)
Afternoon update -- double click on the picture to see! The rains stopped a little while after I took the first picture. It's like springtime out there now!
