Nature out of control? Ya think? Out of the control of whom. Not us for sure.
We might tinker with the edges of nature; clear some forest, control our own little environments, fool a plant here or there into adapting to our needs. It is all temporary and in the end futile. Nature will do what it does and part of that is laying waste to our best laid plans from time to time.
All the gods of all the people seem unable or disinclined to control nature, so what makes us think we can? Stop the earth from shaking or keep it from raining, good luck with that.
The grand plan for was for our new wall to be painted tomorrow. They cannot start to lay the pavers until the wall gets painted. Unfortunately, it rained all night, last night, and shows no sign of letting up so far today. Tomorrow may be another wash out for our workers.
You might notice the bit of blue showing through the opening in the wall in the photo. That is a tarp I threw over a hole I dug. One of the new pipes I laid for the irrigation is leaking and needs to be fixed. I need it to stop raining first. Otherwise, I will be another roadblock in finishing this project.
