OMG we're on day four and it's still pouring. 150+ mm down and another 65 yet to come.


I'm getting MOULDY !!!

At least the wind has died down. Finally took a look out back and half a dozen big trees down. Coworker spotted her lawn swing in the river behind her house Friday night. Yesterday they went to fish it out and the river had risen so much they can't see it any more. Either it's now totally covered or it's already floated down stream.

I think we have become a desert

Wonder if I could send some down to you through the pipeline? Sure got lots to spare.

I had only just started parking at our back door to save me the long walk from the driveway and the damn stairs.....now the backyard (read....weeds) has turned into a muck pond and I'm back to lugging groceries the long way. Too damn old for this shit, rain, mud, snow, ice.........that 'desert' almost sounds tempting if it weren't for the tornados!

but everyone should have the joy of experiencing the electricity in the air,the smell and the feel of a tornado that has skipped over you

It is November and I am still watering

I feel your pain rott.
My yellow lab went out in the yard and came back in a chocolate lab.
The mud!!!
I'll take out the row boat and row by your place and help your lug groceries.
The water is actually pooling around the house. tantrum
This is crazy.
My roosters are going to float away soon. Shocked

Just got back in from what else, fucking groceries. The storm drains through the village are now fountains in the main road. So many houses built and trees lost, there's nowhere else for the water to go.

Here's a shot from our intersection. What is now under water is pasture land, a lot of it used for sods. The river, which you normally have to climb down the bank to reach water, runs along the far 'shore'. It's hard to tell by this but to walk from 'this' side to the far side would take a good half hour............right now much faster by boat.

The rain warning is still in effect.
Looks like most of the upcoming week is all rain.

You just HAD to say it didn't you!!!!! Mad

The way our driveway slopes (in several directions) I'll soon be able to float the groceries to the front door. :twisted:

That's the ONLY plus side...........except it was great being able to roll Quinn's cage out on the deck to soak making it easier to scrub.

Geesh, should have rolled it out again to rinse!!! think

Funny, I put the HUGE bird cage outside to let nature help me clean it.
It's all clean now.
I had to go 4 feet away from where I put it...but it's clean.
I found it-lol

I guess the rain is helpful that way.
Cleans the cages and dog crates really good.
