Wacky Weather

Post by donnie »

I'll put this in the Games and Fun category, since I have to laugh to keep from crying. :lol:

Day before yesterday we had about 7.5 inches of rain in a space of 3 hours (maybe more, I'm sure a lot splashed out the top of the gauge)—and this on top of saturated soil from 2 months of above average rain.

Anyway my basement flooded, as did many others in town. There were also caved in roads, and a lot of other damage. :( I've got things mostly back in order, but we're bracing for more rain next week. But...thankful it wasn't worse!

And then this morning, this was the scene from my patio...

Oh, wow!! I'm sorry you had such trouble. 😢 I hope not a lot was damaged.

The snow is pretty. We've had weeks of cold weather (which I actually enjoy) but really not much rain apart from the other night (lots of wind and rain in the middle of the night).
