The Wet Head is Dead

Actually, I'm alive and well but I really got drenched this morning when we went down to feed.  It's been raining steadily all day and it's cold.  This morning I had the hood up on my jacket on the way to the barn and then lowered it once I was inside the aisle way.  I hate the way I can't see anything when the hood is up.  I have a little tiny pinhead so the hood falls over the top of my head and covers my eyes.  So when I went out into the pasture to muck, I initially left the hood down so I could see where I was going.  But it started to rain hard so I flipped it back up.  Meanwhile, the hood had filled with rain so I effectively dumped a bucket of water on my head and down my back.  It soaked my head, soaked my back, soaked my arms - I was thoroughly soaked.  I threw everything into the dryer when I got back to the house, used the blow dryer to dry my hair and warm me up (not that I care what my hair looks like on a freezing rainy day but I was COLD) and poured myself a steaming mug of coffee.  I've spent the rest of the day in front of the fire,staring out the window at the rain.   

Where did the California sunshine go???  I want it back!! 


  1. Sounds like you have a lot of rain coming down in a short time to fill your hood up like that. That's just too much. I'd be sitting in front of the fire to warm up too.

  2. Yuck, you got a bit of Washington your way. :( I'll try to summon it back.

  3. Annette, we had a HORRIBLE wind storm down here in the desert today! It looks like our mountains are getting snow, so I'm eager to see them tomorrow morning. HA! That is, IF the clouds go away! They probably won't and snow is forecast down to 4,500 feet!!!!

  4. haha isn't it awful when you do something like that?! i hate being soaked when everything sticks to you and you're cold! ugh!

    i hope you're bunny is feeling better today, even with the miserable weather :)

  5. OK, now your place seems like it's more on earth. I thought for a while there that you might be living in heaven :)

    Glad you got warmed up. What a cold surprise that must have been!!

  6. Sounds like something I would do! Like you, I'm not to happy with the lack of visability when I have my hood up on my jacket. When I take Miley out for her last walk before bedtime it makes me feel vulnerable to have that hood up.


Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
