Rain Rain Go Away (snow too)

It has been raining and cold and windy for 5 days now. I am plumb tired of it. It did hold off this morning for a few hours this morning and I did get a fairly good workout with Sage. The round pen was a little squishy in spots but she just avoided them and we got her going pretty good. The one thing I really am having a problem with is her leading. The new halter with the knots works OK but she really does not want to come with me. I turn her around and back her where we are going but I want her to walk with me. I don't know why she has changed her mind about walking with me. Just have to keep at it I guess.

We are not only having rain, Sherman Pass has about been snowed closed and there is snow on Mt. Spokane again. It is fresh on all the peaks around here. Mica Peak looks like winter. It is miserable. This is June for goodness sake.

Last night we went to a benefit dinner for a fellow in Bob's Mounted Search and Rescue. I can't say the meal was too good but it was for a good cause. I put a couple of bids in the silent auction but haven't heard anything so am assuming I didn't get either. That's OK. He has terminal cancer. It was a nice thing to do for the fellow.
