I took this picture when I got home from work the other day. I stood in the middle of my driveway, and to the northeast, I saw this (above).
And to the southwest, I saw this(above)!
Then less than an hour after I took that picture, the skies opened up and it downpoured. I couldn't believe how hard it was raining! Mike and I had some errands to run and we got about a mile away from home and turned around and came back because the roads were so flooded and it was raining so hard we couldn't see.
It rained so hard that the drains couldn't keep up. We ended up with at least 6 inches of water in our driveway!
Wednesday was mostly dry, but it downpoured for about 30 minutes in the middle of the day. Not just a little sprinkling, but heavy makes-it-impossible-to-see rain. And today? Rain again, mostly sprinkles and showers, and mist, nothing heavy, but I know my garden is getting lots of water and our grass will be nice and green!
