I swear I only mentioned it in passing


I was so excited yesterday because the weatherman said we had an 80% chance of rain. Then the chance dropped to 50% and we watched the weather map as they showed all the rain activity going on in NE Arkansas and nary a drop here. I mentioned then that we probably couldn't even buy a rain. Today we have a 30% chance of rain and I dare say the whole 30% landed right on top of us. In less than an hour 2 1/4 inches fell and because Zach had a dental appt. this morning, I floated out. The photo above was how it looked driving out this morning and I'd already driven through a hundred yards or more of water. I got a little nervous a time or two.

They are calling for flash floods today...I welcome the rain because that means I don't have to get out the watering can for the patio ;-D

What ever happened to a nice rainy day. Does everything have to be violent? Either none or way too much in a short time.

Vicki said...

wow, that is a long driveway. Bet it really seemed long that day! Good thing you didn't go off the side.

No rain here, just hot.

Didn't have to water here today either Tammy. Probably won't have to tomorrow either.

It's really too much at once for this road Cassie-b, the county hasn't dredged the ditches since I've lived here and probably for a decade before that.

LOL, that's not my drive-way Miz Vicki but it might as well be for all that the county does to it. This road leads to another rural road and my house is 7/10s of a mile from the other road. Probably 6/10s of that was under water this morning. If they don't do something soon, we and our two neighbors will need a boat!

Damn! We're getting a stretch of rain on this end too.

When it comes that fast it isn't really good for much is it?

Mary Lou said...
