It's sukkah time...

and apparently that means it is time to rain non-stop in South Florida (great for our draught conditions, bad for our sukkah building conditions!) Our new catch-phrase should be, "If you build it, it will rain". B"H this year the rain didn't come complete with a hurricane on the way (keinahorra...poo, poo, poo).
We had fun STUFFING my car full of palm branches for our s'chach and putting up the frame in the rain. Kelev even jumped into the action at some point...I have to say, there is nothing quite like a wet dog in your sukkah.

We are now on our third straight day of rain...if only it would stop for a bit so we could finish.

(If you are looking for some ideas for sukkah decorations, be sure not to miss Juggling Frogs' post here. She is AMAZING. I have to say if I could go back to being a kid, I'd want to be one of hers!)

Nice picture...hopefully, it will eventually stop raining. LO is going to be very handy with tools and lumber when she grows up, isn't she??

You can come visit ours, if you want out of the rain. I miss Los Angeles, but I have to say, this year, on the other coast, I have schach galore ( a neighbor -by chance- trimmed all her very large trees) and the weather is downright summery.
