Despite 12.5 inches of rain in the past week, I feel incredibly lucky. Seeing photos from Duluth, I’m reminded of the massive destructive power of water. Here, lots of people have wet basements and some have ravaged gardens. Hail did a small amount of damage in my yard Monday night, ripping leaves, knocking down tree branches and kicking over the branches on a lovely hydrangea. Time to pick the flowers and make a hail bouquet. I hope your day is sunny!
