So call me crazy...

But I'm thinking this whole "weather" thing might impact my barn time this weekend.

Cropped from a photo that BO #2 sent me.  That is not dirt.  That is water.

I'm told the pasture is "horrible" there.  The main pasture at BO #1's place has a lot more high and dry ground, but has been known to sprout rivers during heavy rainfall.

This is, I should point out, before we know how far inland the hurricane is coming.  The area where the barns are got somewhere between 5 and 10 inches of rain in the last week; I'm in a drier area (this time) and we still got 3-5 inches.  This is just the extraordinary rainfall that's been happening this year; we were under flood warnings today, and I swear the same storm sat over my town for 5+ hours this morning.

We're 300+ miles from the coast, so I expect we'll get some wind and some rain, as usual; how much depends on exactly what Harvey decides to do.
