Epic Rain!

Sorry about the lack of pictures-

Yesterday we went to BBQ at Jody's and so Holly got more than enough exercise playing with Robyn's kids so we didn't come to the woods.

Today about half way round we got caught in a thunderstorm of biblical, flash-flood proportions! I was not wearing my new UK wellies, nor a hat nor a coat- luckily I had a couple of poo-bags in my pocket so I could wrap my phone and wallet, but within a couple of minutes I might as well have just jumped into the stream. The trail turned into a torrent of muddy run-off and I couldn't see more than 20 yards, but Holly still insisted in having the ball thrown for her :)

so, no pictures, but normal service will be resumed tomorrow...
