It’s raining, it’s pouring…. Zoey the Cool Cat is bored

Did you know?

El Cajon, California, gets an annual average of 13 inches of rain. My front yard has received 9 inches in the past 36 hours. If we can get just 4 more inches today, we can be done with rain for the rest of 2018! Yahooooooo!

My succulent landscaping project has been put on hold, and considering how waterlogged the soil is, I suspect it will be several weeks before I will be able to resume landscaping.

Zoey the Cool CatFollowing is a short video of the
rain the morning of January 9, taken from my home office, where Zoey the Cool Cat sits sadly & silently on an office chair, staring out the office window, wondering where all the rabbits, squirrels, lizards & birds have gone, & wondering what that cold, wet
stuff is that falls from the sky & makes a complete mess.

I'm Zoey the Cool Cat, and I approve this post

      It looks like our little subdivision has great drainage, and the hills are alive with lots of trees and brush. As long as we don’t get a fire through here followed by heavy rains………..

            Aaaah. I see. 🙂 I’m kind of fond of succulents and cacti myself but for different reasons. Out here the bushfire risk is very high so I quickly learned that cottage gardens are not a good idea. But succulents…. 🙂
            The area directly abutting my house is essentially a rock garden. Past the rocks are succulents. Past them are roses and fruit trees. Mwahahaha! High Five!
