Holy cats, has it been raining!
We had 4.5 inches one night, then 2.5 inches fell the next day. (That's about 11.5 cm and 6.5 cm.)
I'm a few days late in posting these pictures, and the ground is still boot-sucking soggy.
If "beaver-drowning rain" isn't an old country expression, it should be. Driving towards town, I saw two dead beavers on the side of the road. You know it's a lot of rain when that happens.
It's hard to complain about this much rain after 3 years of drought. But it was starting to become worrisome.
Jasmine fretted. She whined. She barked at the water!
Just starting to recede.
Ahh. Much better.
This is a little drainage ditch that hasn't had water in it for 3 years or so.
This was the last time the water was so high. That was in the spring (when you expect that sort of thing), almost 4 years ago now.
They say it's going to rain again tomorrow...
