So much rain!

storm front

We have had a lot of rain recently and this week that I have been holding down the fort has been super rainy. This picture was actually the night before hubby left for the west coast, it was a very dramatic looking sky which ironically resulted in no rain, this storm went north.

rain gauge

This old horse corner feeder, has become a default rain gauge. Seems that rain gauges always have an expiration date, always falling apart sooner than later. The rain in here was a day and half’s worth of rain and probably about 4-5 inches..

flooding by highway

On the way to town I passed this planted farm field, which appears to be a lake.

flooding in town

This was what it looked like as I got into town. There were actually other towns not far from here that had considerably more rain, with one community getting 13.2 inches! Most homes there sustained some degree of damage. It’s been tough for a lot of people,  I feel very grateful we live on a hillside. That hubby is a good planner. I have teased him that he should have been a risk assessor, however, I also find out that routinely his very critical  thinking leaves us in a good place. I’m always learning things from him, sometimes when he doesn’t know it at all.
