This morning we woke up to sky that was almost black as night & torrential downpours. I haven't checked our rain gauge but I'm guessing that we probably had close to 2" of rain in about 2 hours. YIKES!!! Photo of the sky this morning from www.ky3.com
Yes, we need a little bit of rain but here recently it's been a little bit ridiculous. This wouldn't be such a big deal except for what it does to our backyard. In both corners of our yard we have low spots where the rain collects---this also happens to be where the guttters empty out into our yard which creates a lovely water hole. Lovely, just lovely. In addition to the small ponds we have in our back yard let me also remind you that we have a 95 lb lab who loves water, mud, & anything else that might have the ability to cool him off. Needless to say, this is similar to what I expect to find when I get home from work tonight. Sweet innocent face, wagging tail, & covered from head to tail in mud!
