Rain was pounding down when I woke up this morning, I had gotten up at 5:30 to go to the bathroom and no rain was falling so I guess the rains were a little later getting here than expected.
There was a slight break in the hard rains just as I finished making my coffee and hubbie and I both used this break to get the morning chores done and get the Honda loaded for market. There is no signs of flooding yet and the wind isn't too high so hopefully there will be some customers visit market today. I glanced at the rain gauge and saw around 1.25 inches this morning.
Different day , different boots , same purpose !!!
After market I lucked up with only light rain falling when it was time to load to leave.
On the way home there wasn't much traffic on the roads but there sure was a lot of water.
This was an area south of the market on Greenville hwy that always has flooding troubles.
Hubbie and I both relaxed for a little while this afternoon as the rains continued to come down.
As I sat at he computer listening to the wind blow outside I looked up out the window at these 3 huge Oak trees and said a silent prayer that they might stand strong in the winds and not fall on our house.
About 5:00 #1 son brought his Ford Escape up to the barn to work on his back brakes, hubbie went up there to hold a light for him. They have a covered shop area but it was full of water.
I decided to feed a little early as the dark clouds were making darkness come early today.
I had to do some work in Annie's dog lot to get the water out before I fed.
After chores in a still light rain fall I walked to the covered patio to make another picture of the flood waters and to my surprise saw that they had receded since I came home at 2:30.
The total rainfall since yesterday evening at chore time was 3 inches.
Some areas narrowly missed catastrophic flooding along the Rocky Broad river.
Thanking God for sparing us so far any major flooding or damage and grateful for the blessings of this day.
Good Night and God Bless.
