It has certainly been a rainy long weekend for a lot of us here in Kansas
and I'm sure in other states as well. The tropical storm in the Gulf sent
waves of heavy rains our way for the last few days.
We have a creek to the north of us that winds it's way back and forth across
fields all around us. At last check this afternoon we had recieved
5 3/4 inches
of rainfall starting Saturday evening and after a short reprieve
this afternoon it has been pouring off and on ever since.
The above photo's are of the bridge and creek approx 1/8th of a mile to the north of us. It also swings behind our property. It is normally a small narrow creek that barely runs all summer.
About 5 this evening Hubby and I went out to check on the creek and a few of the roads surrounding the farm.
This is what we saw.
This is a pasture along side the creek and road.
This is the road to the north of us. It's not a good road to drive after a rain but it will be impossible to get down until it has a chance to dry up. Thank heavens this isn't a road we have to travel!
I just checked the rain gauge and we have another 3/4" of rain in there.
Thunder is rumbling in the distance and the weatherman says we
have a 90% chance of rain during the night.
I'm starting to wish we never sold the boat!
See the dark row of tree's behind the over flowing creek?
That's our farm.
Here's a few pictures of our soggy yard. New grass seed
would have been washed away with this deluge.
The one good thing about this rain is...I won't have to drag the hose around
watering everything this week...YEAY!
I hope you have a WONDERFUL day.
