Our great state has been a drought for a couple of years. Any rain is a welcome site, but when it comes all at once...
I am hoping that we aren't seeing all the rain for the summer right now. I recorded five and a half inches of rainfall over the weekend. The yard was flooded. The street looked like a river. I had to bail out the turtle pond twice. The pool began overflowing. The dogs and cat dreaded to go out.
This morning, I woke to a ray of sunshine. It was nice to see it. However, it is only giving false hope of a bright, sunshine filled day. Now, the gray clouds are slowly making their way back. We are expecting more rain (hit and miss) today. Looks like baseball practice tonight will be a washout.
At least, the lakes are filling and the water table is rising again. We are out of drought status and making good progress to stay that way for a while. Even though, Mother Nature may ruin a weekend or delay a ball game, in the end there is a silver lining.
