Sometimes a Little Rain Will Fall
And then some days A LOT will fall. I estimate we had 4 inches of rain yesterday.
In an HOUR.
Rumor was this was the same storm that caused the flash floods in Arkansas that killed 9 people.
The picture above is the crick in front of my house during a normal rain. A lot of times it is dry this time of year. The one below is the same view, but at the height of the flood.
I have a little fire pit down in a bend of the creek. The water got a little too deep to enjoy a fire yesterday.
The storm also created a water feature in the flower bed in front of the house. This was just water that was running down the sidewalk next to the house.
After the rain quit, and I could walk down the driveway instead of swim, (I tried to post a video here, but Blogger had an ISSUE) I went to the main road and got a couple of pictures.
Between the two guardrails is the road. The creek is normally 4 FEET below the road level.
The water on the road is about 14 inches deep, and down stream spread out to cover a two acre field.
Yeah, we got some rain.
