Wordless Wednesday


We got at least 4 inches overnight


Thank God for these drains we'd put in about ten years ago! We put in three of them and let me tell you, they've saved us from flooding in the house. We were flooded out once...we learn quick!
What a Nasty morning!! Goodness, at least when the storms moved through here early this morning, we managed to dodge a few bullets! Several towns close to us weren't so lucky. Salado, which is about 40 miles south of us, (Jenna Bush had her wedding party there) Have huge old oak trees pulled up all over the place. Haven't heard the full extent of all the damage. As the morning goes on, I'm sure we will. So, since this is Wordless Wed, I'll shut up...LOL.

Good Morning, Donna!
I have to agree with you that this rain is getting very old. I am glad you put that drain in. So, glad that you haven't flooded.

Have a great day!

Still waiting for some of that rain over in Arizona! :D

Sounds like the drains have been a really great investment! I bet it's a little easier to enjoy the rain when you don't have to worry about it coming into the house! (We get flash floods here and they're nasty when they happen, but they come very infrequently!)

We haven't had a good pour down for some time now. Any longer and we'll have a draught, any excuse to save water. Mind you, as soon as the rain does come, everyone will say "Oooh, that's the last of the summer then!" Happens every year!
