We're in Need of an Ark....

We went most of the summer with no rain. My flowers were dying, our yard was struggling - and now in the past 48 hours, we're nearing 8" of rain. For the first time in 21 years, the pond across the street from our house has not only filled, it's exceeded the bank and flowed into the street. We have water in our basement. We're still not as bad off as the poor people in Louisiana and Texas - but enough is enough!! The first picture was taken several hours ago, just as the pond started to overflow.

This photo was taken just a few minutes ago. The grass edge is our front yard - where it meets the street - except there is no street.

This is the area directly across the street from our house, where Kelli normally parks her car. Her car was sitting here until she waded out to it and moved it up the street to higher ground.
