That’s how much rain we got in less than 24 hours!!! The fist 5 inches fell in about eight hours and the last inch and a half we got yesterday evening and over night. Our yard pretty much turned into a small lake, and I think if we had gotten another half inch or so, we would have had a new address because we would have floated down the street!
Greg and I got to go outside in that downpour because we discovered two leaky windows.. the one here in the computer room and the one in Melissa’s room. We were only outside for about five minutes or so, trying to cover the windows with plastic. And not only did we get drenched, but it didn’t help at all and the windows were still leaking. We were able to catch the drips from Melissa’s window in a cup, but we had to use towels in the computer room because the water was running down the window pane. Thankfully we got a break in the rain for a few hours in the evening, and during the night it wasn’t as heavy anymore, and we didn’t have to get up to change the towels.
Of course I took some pictures….
Our rain gauge. First picture was taken yesterday afternoon just before I emptied it out, and the second one this morning.
From yesterday afternoon… our flooding yard.
Redbud in the rain.
And one from this morning. I don’t have rubber boots, so I dug out my beach flip-flops and went to stand in the lake. OMG that water was sooo C-O-L-D!!!!!!! You can see how deep it is.
Blue skies and sunny today.
