~ When it Rains it Pours ~

Hi friends~

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We received over 8 1/2 inches of rain on Saturday. I thought I would share a few pictures.

The water got high real quick....the black trash bag is my neighbors lawn clippings floating down the street~

It just rained and rained....

all over our ready to be stained fence. :)

Molly was so scared, she got in the cats house...poor baby.

Heavy rain and wind caused our hammock to crash~

A little break from the downpour and a few brave birds ventured over~

The bird house almost fell over....

Look how high the water was....

Our driveway~

Our mailbox is leaning ( we had real strong winds, too. )

We even lost power for awhile....My Mister was at work and their power was out for over 4 hours....A co-worker brought him hours later in a big truck.

Finally we were all home together safe & sound....the sun made an appearance....just as it was time for it to set for the night.

Look @ the clouds one light & fluffy and the other dark & ominous

Hope you have a beautiful day ~

Hugs~ J

Jessica, You really did get rain. But, just think how beautiful everything is going to be once the sun comes out! We got a little rain on saturday. Only about 1 inch. We really need more. I was going to work in the yard today. But, it's way.. to windy! Do you have pee gravel in the hole your birdhouse is in? We get a lot of wind here. So, I know lots of little tricks. It makes a post much sturdier. Your yard is looking beautiful! The fence looks great. Hugs, Terrie

Hi J, I hope you are starting to dry out! We're getting the heavy rain today and again tomorrow. Its been a chilly and wet spring so far and I don't like being stuck in the house all day with Amelia, we want to go for a walk in the sunshine! Did you see Christies post? I miss her already and will send her an email and e-card! Have a good night sweetie! xo

We have been getting rain but not like you...looks like you got a flood! I love the picture of the clouds.
Have a great week!
