Rain, rain, and more rain....

Over the past 3 days we have received over 6" of rain and more is expected. Local flooding is prevalent. It wakes us up at night with the lightning and thunder. All the animals huddle together, I got up at 3 and went to basement and elsewhere, checking for leaks, so far okay. Made some chow and watching news....more rain 4-5" expected all week. Everyone be careful out there....

The Spam looks good, the bacon and toast are burnt, and the coffee is polluted.
Have to fix Jim a good breakfast next time I see him.

We are getting some good rain here too, but nothing to outrageous forecast.

Jim , I know how you feel . We got 6 to 8 inches rain about a week and a half ago
The rain washed a Dam out so with that and the rain , the two major highways here were flooded / closed , a couple of bridges were out , the Main Street in town was under water ,the trees are tipping over cause the ground is soft / soggy and the level in our lake went up 18” going over the top of our boat dock
The lake level is just starting to drop , but everything sure is green

April and May were unusually dry in the Florida Panhandle; my ponds almost dried up. We have had plenty of heavy rain since then, though, and the ponds are full again.



Right now it's sunny and mild in Oshkosh, WI. Lots of noise from airplanes, though..
