Storms and Gaviota
The weather report says Storms the next few days. Tomorrow only severe thunderstorms and up to 2 inches of rain. The ground is waterlogged already, so we are warned: there could be flooding.
But then Thursday, the report continues, we are to be prepared for 6 up to 15 inches of rain. If this happens, there will be flooding! The irrigation ponds will fill in record time.
Meanwhile, we weather our own storms here: a goat that got poisoned yesterday on the walk (she is better this morning), a worker healing from an injury, a period of quiet and of carefulness as the days grow shorter and the ponds fill.
