Tonight will be the harvest moon–full moon closest to the fall equinox. And a supermoon. Closer to earth than usual. I’m feeling its pull. Awake since 2:30. Not good. Not bad. But clearly EARLY. So this, this early morning, a little cloth–the beginning of Harvest Moon ’14. Moon will be appliqued. Probably some kantha stitching. What else? Maybe nothing.
And it’s been raining. Hard. Constant. Straight-down rain that means the basement is getting damp because the lay of the land changed when the neighbors behind me cut down their forest. The run-off has changed. And where the next-door neighbor’s retaining wall fell over in May, now this:
It’s hard to get the sense of the drop-off but it’s quite steep, and the dozer man is building up a dam of sorts to keep the water on my side of the hill. It’s a fine solution even though I’m losing some yard space, and all I have to pay for is the dozer man hauling the chain link fence to the land fill. Oh–and the new fence. Overall, it’s about a 50′ span that will be re-erected.
As soon as it’s daylight, I’m going out to see what’s left of it all. Last night a red river was running down neighbor’s driveway, down the driveway, down the street, heading down to Canie Creek.
