The Rain keeps coming

Although the rain is great and we need it, I like to have it stop for a couple of weeks, so the property could dry out a bit, but it just keeps coming, it just so boggy, you cant even get around in the 4X4, can only use the quads.

Will post a couple of Marks (next doors) tracto and trailer bogged to the hilt, put the tractor out withours, and had to hook both tractors to the trailer.(FUN)

But I have to say the RAIN is good.

Not that, that matters as long as, the little snowball is all better, when it's time to go back to the country. "cant wait".
