We had a very heavy rainstorm mid-afternoon today. It not only rained but there was thunder and lightening. Both dogs got really scared as did myself and Carol. I just hope we don't get any more as the ground is very saturated. The garden, such as it is, is nothing but a quagmire and when the dogs did eventually go out they came in covered in mud and we had to keep them in the kitchen to make sure they were dry before coming into the lounge. The floor leading from the patio doors from the garden was covered in muddy paw-prints after they came in. All the work and effort of cleaning the floor earlier in the week for the house inspection gone in a moment. Never mind, it can be mopped again.
