Lucy’s monument

It rained heavily today. My electronic rain gauge quit transmitting after 2.33″. We set a rainfall record of 2.58″ today. The rain actually started about 10:00 pm last night, so we wound up with 3.39″ total. More rain is on the way later tonight into tomorrow late morning. The rain quit in Eden Prairie about 1:30 and moved out of Bloomington by 3:00. That must have been when her monument was placed.

I hope to get back and visit my folks this weekend. It’s been awhile since I visited my brother Robert’s grave in Albert Lea. I’ll make a trip to the cemetery on my way to Luverne. With the ten hour days at work right now, it will be a short trip home. I’ll need Monday to get household chores done.

Have a dry night!

I wanted the full dates for her birth and death but that supposedly wasn’t possible with the new design.

  1. Elegant without being overstated. Very nice.

    Sometimes a short trip home is better than no trip at all. I know the folks will be glad to see you nevertheless. Like yours, the apple tree here didn’t bloom this year. Perhaps it’s a year for growth. Hug everyone for me.
