It's flooding out here like crazy. We're so lucky to be up on a hill so all we have to do is just watch it (except we're also watching our road wash away). So many folks around here are having trouble with it. Many people couldn't make it in to church yesterday because roads and highways are flooded and they couldn't get across. Many men from church left early yesterday to go out and help pump flooded basements and get some people moved to higher ground.
We walked our pasture yesterday. Fortunately, much of our pasture runs downhill so most of the water runs off. However, the spots of level land in the pasture have several inches of water just standing on it as the ground cannot absorb any more moisture. Our ponds are very very full and the air is filled with the song of happy frogs.
The town where our favorite WalMart is at (about a half hour from here) received 21 inches of rain in one day. As of last night they were expecting rivers to crest at 46 feet past flood stage. River surfing anyone?!
