Last week, the local weathercasters advised a chance of rain this week. It's been months since we've had rain.
This weekend, they said we're for sure going to get rain, up to an inch and a half, today and tomorrow. We spent the morning getting ready.
Brian finally got rid of all of the ejunk that's been piling up on the patio table (starting with the old copy machine). When I cleaned up the office, I also put stuff out there. Old wired phones, some pc cards that were okay, but way outdated and just junk that you're not supposed to send to the landfill, but take someplace for recycling. He got it all boxed up and took it out to the car.
Then he got on the roof and started raking the pine needles off and cleaned out the gutters. He got most of the stuff off of the shadecloth that's over the patio. A lot of leaves and seed pods from the tree and the seeds filtered down through the shadecloth and I swept the patio. It's the nicest it's looked in months. Rain ready.
I washed the sofa covers and vacuumed.
Bring on the rain!
