Colorado weather is predictably unpredictable. Last week we had record setting heat. This week we have rain. Lots and lots and lots of rain.
Like any good horse mom, I've been worrying about my boy so today Carol and I donned our rain coats and headed out to check on him.The rain was so heavy that the windshield wipers could barely keep up and nearly every intersection was flooded. Sustained, torrential rain is extremely uncommon in Colorado, and the storm drains are completely overwhelmed.
We arrived at the barn during a slight lull in the storm. The arena was completely underwater...
but Rev's pen was drier than I'd expected.
Poor soggy pony!
We filled up a bucket with nom noms,
and hung out with him while he ate.
By the time he'd finished, it was pouring again. We didn't want to get stranded so we got back in the car and headed home. All the streets, no matter how wide, were down to just one lane...
and the park by my house is completely flooded.
Carol didn't stay, so now it's just me and the girls, sitting at home and watching the rain come down.
I wonder when it will end?
