The mid-West was flooded in many areas with higher than "normal" rainfall prevalent. The far-West was dry, dry, dry with hotter, drier weather than "normal." In the northeast, it apparently seldom stopped raining, at least in downeast Maine. My garden is full of slugs and waterlogged. Vegetable returns are poor thanks to the slugs but the flowers are abundant and very welcome.
Burning Man was as amazing as always. More on that later. It was very hot, dry and playa dusty, per usual.
I am happy to be home but missing the warmth of the west. These old bones do not love the damp cold. Will be digging in to fight the good fight for Mother Earth and all her children, as soon as I get done with all the laundry.
Bright Blessings to all!
