Mother Nature Has Our Number
I can just hear her saying "I'll teach them to complain about hot and dry". We thought we got rain yesterday, she doubled it today. The streets were like rivers. Not able to drive to the park to feed the ducks. Hope they didn't drown. A friend south of town sent pictures. Her back yard is a swimming pool. I'm not talking mud puddles, I'm talking you can barely see her lawn furniture. The lake at the end of our street was just about to dry up so they could continue getting ready to build houses or apartments. Now the lake is back. They barely get some of the chug holes patched and the water washes them out again. I just try to drive slow and straddle them. I've not cried "uncle" yet Anni. I love the rain but wouldn't like it in my house. I'm sorry for people who do have damage from the rain. We're lucky to have good drainage here and in most of our town now. I think we still have 40% for several days. It was 40% chance of rain today. Won't be driving on the ranch roads anytime soon.
