    Default Rainy day

    Here it is, another rainy day, expecting nine inches of rain today. I
    have nothing to preserve but some sweet chiles and the freezer is full
    of those, reckon I'll just stir fry a bunch of them to go with our
    ribeyes and taters tonight. Maybe a little green onion and some garlic
    chives mixed in and done with a smidgen of olive oil and cracked pepper
    corns. Bought the ribeyes back in the early part of this year out of the
    used meat bin at the market, vacuum packed them and stuck them in the
    freezer. I do like getting quality meat at half price just because other
    folks want their beef looking fresh cut, give me aged beef anytime.

    Raining just enough there's no point trying to do any outside work so
    guess I will do some further cleaning of the garage. To wet to haul
    anything to the storage locker in the back of the pickup so just fill a
    few boxes and stack them up ready to go.

    I made a chicken and andouille sausage stew the other day and then put
    half of it into a vacuum container and into the freezer. Come colder
    weather we will have a hearty dish for our dinner. I do like those
    vacuum seal containers, no freezer burn or any degradation of frozen
    cooked meals.

    Yup, in three days, actually two and a half, we got almost eighteen
    inches of rain. Remember, we're living on top of a prehistoric sand
    dune, water soaks right in. Nearest rock is several thousand feet
    straight down.

    In addition, we have an excellent gravity drainage system, concrete
    canals all carry excess rainwater down to a couple of bayous, a large
    river, and then to the Gulf. We seldom have homes flood here in this
    town. Now flooded streets are common during the downpour, within thirty
    minutes after the rain stops the streets are clear again.

    No webbing, we just sit here in a remodeled house and watch the rain
    fall. Having been retired for over five years now I get to stay warm and
    dry instead of getting out in the weather.

    Watching the weather report a few minutes ago, seems some of the
    northern states and even down into the midwest are facing a possible
    freeze today and tonight. It's 84F here right now with a nice breeze
    blowing in from the north. Eat yer hearts out Yankee's.

    if we had that much rain here the village would
    be flooded. we're "UP" from the village so i
    suspect we're safe from being flooded in the house
    but the surrounding lower areas might be under
    water for a while until downstream sorted itself
    out and the water made it's way into Lake Huron.

    it has been so dry this year that the lakes
    and rivers are all down several feet from
    normal.

    har! one thing i like about gardening up
    here is that i get a break for a few months
    so that i can get caught up on my reading
    and other projects.

    not too much preserving going on this season.
    fruit prices are way up. for some it may be a
    good season for trying more herb/wine flavored
    jellies.
