Here's a picture to give you an idea of how muddy it is out on the dirt road and around the edges of the vineyard. This is what my jeans look like when I get back from the morning walk.
I'm wearing my dog-walking jeans but not my hiking boots — too muddy! — when I come back into the house after a 30- to 40-minute walk with Callie. Those are my house slippers. It wasn't raining when I went out for the walk yesterday morning, but it had rained hard the previous afternoon.
