    We had 6 plus inches and it was still coming when I took these yesterday morning. Nice lake between me and my neighbor.

    Nice to see temporary lake in front of the house but watch out for the moving creatures especially snake and other insects which looking for shelter.

    I don't like too much rain but I like your pictures.They are also a reminder that our rainy season is starting. Time for the fungicide.

    In some ways I am glad it rains somewhere else, about three weeks ago it took us three hours to do a usual one hour trip, because of slips and flooding. That was not fun as we had a show to set up. And the next day had to go back for another load.

    Wow, you really got a lot of water. We had flooding here a couple weeks ago. The ground is still wet from it.

    Hope none went into your home and it recedes soon.

    Cheers,
