That was some storm!

We have had some crazy weather here the past couple days. One minute it looks like rain and the next it's blue skies and sunny.  It's been hard to make outdoor plans because the weather is constantly changing!

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.
I had Mike drive down our road so you could see the amount of water that went over his car.
Then this truck went by, the water sprayed up over his truck, and probably 10 feet into the neighbors yard!
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!


  1. It's been crazy! It's so weird the way the sun can be shining and then it's pouring. Supposed to be better this weekend!

  2. It seems to be weird weather all over the place. I am praying you will get as much sunshine the rest of this summer as you are having in rain.
