And the Rain Came...

Yesterday we had almost 3 inches of rain. The downpour was torrential, the lightning reminded me of the movie "War of the Worlds". Hubster went out to the garage to close the doors we had open, this one snuck up on us...and he couldn't get back to the house due to the lightning for quite awhile. The thunder rattled my bones.
SO, now...welcome to our lake. When the weather comes from the north, we tend to flood - as the water runs downhill.


It's 6:15 PM and the water is still touching the bottom of the bridge. It rained between about 9 and noon. And ya, it's been really sweltering, but did we deserve this much moisture? Can you say 'muggy'?

We usually go survey the damage - to see if there is any. What we found were lots of mosquitoes. They bring welts where they bite, for me.
