After emptying 2 1/2 inches from the rain gauge during morning chores as I sloshed through a steady downpour it came as no surprise to see the bottom pastures full of water from an overflowing creek on the way to church. Especially after over 4" of rain fell last week end.
Hubbie had to go to a Deacon's meeting at 3:30 so I had a nice quiet afternoon just listening to the raindrops on the roof and snuggling in the upper 40's temperatures with my 4-legged kids.
As I did the evening feeding chores in the rain I took this pic of my beautiful azalea blossoms bowing their heads under the weight of all these raindrops.
On my way inside I emptied another almost 2" of rain from the gauge bringing the total since yesterday evening to 4 1/2 inches ! And all night it has rained harder than it has all day so I'm sure I'll have more to add tomorrow morning. The wind has started blowing tonight so hopefully trees won't come down.
I've been following this accident on Old Fort Mt. all afternoon on WLOS TV facebook.
Late this afternoon thankfully the horses were not harmed and all were rescued into other trailers and were deemed in good health by the on scene vet with only one of them limping slightly.
As I go to bed tonight I wonder what the morning will bring with more rain headed our way overnight.
God has a reason for all this rain and He will reveal it all in His time. I rest in the comfort of His great love.
Good Night and God Bless.
