Sweat and Bird Doo

Here's a picture of the rain across the driveway that I tried to post yesterday but blogger wouldn't let me. We got another good rain today so that should really help out.

I took a walk after the rain yesterday but it had not cooled off any and was so humid. I should have taken a towel to wipe sweat with. Instead I had to use my shirt tail and my short sleeves! When you don't have what you need then you have to improvise!! After today's rain it does seem less humid.

This is a new house they are just finishing up just down the road from us. I think it's real pretty. It looks like it is slanting to the right but that is just the picture taker! It looks like log but they used those half log pieces instead of the whole logs. It seems now lots of folks are using those green roofs or the red ones. Whatever the material is, I don't think you ever have to replace it. Some kind of galvanized metal maybe? It looks like tin. One thing I like is the utilities are underground! No electric wires for the birds to sit on and then poop on your car!!

That is a nice house, I hope they will be nice neighbors for you.
Back when I ran several miles, I really liked running in the rain if it wasn't lightening.
Now I like walking in the rain with an umbrella.

The rain looks errie, but it is a necessary thing, makes the flowers and the crops grow! I LOVE that house. Cape Cod style, but looks bigger than the one I grew up in, love the dormered windows upstairs, great to sit by and watch the rain fall. I noticed that a lot of new construction in the south, when we were in NC, had that kind of roof. Like you said, tin or something mocking tin, a never replace material, my guess too!

I agree. Very pretty house. I live in Illinois and those red and green tin roofs are very popular here. I see them everywhere.

I love the look of the the log house!
Glad you've been getting that much needed rain.
Are most of the utilities usually above ground where you live?
Ours are underground and we've been here 29 yrs. They are still above ground in many older parts of town.

I like the house Rachel. About the bird poop...the birds are simply attempting to buy the car. They're just making deposits.

George Strait? I'm a Toby Keith and Tim McGraw fan.
Oh, and my car is in the garage, so the birdies cannot have at it.
That is a nice house, though.

I love Cliff Morrow's little joke about the birds making deposits. *LOL*
He's made me forget what your post is about. (Just kidding)

We finally got some rain yesterday (one inch) and rain again this afternoon. Yipee! Tell everyone that your driveway isn't's just raining so hard that they can't see it clearly.

I wish our utility lines were buried. We have 3 poles in our yard with lines running every which way. I was building a new house and had all the utility lines buried in's so nice.

I think everyone is getting those tin roofs. Jimmy wants to replace ours with one because they last so long and he also likes the way the rain sounds when it hits them. I'd love to live in that log house, but it would have to have lots of trees around it.

I know what you mean about power lines. Power lines cross my driveway in four different places. When I got a dumptruck full of stone, he had a real fun time trying to dodge those.

We got some rain too. It's so green now!
