Glub Glub

It's been raining pretty much non-stop since 5p Thursday afternoon, when we got some torrential downpours. That lasted for a couple hours, but it hasn't really stopped since then. I don't mean, light drizzly stuff either, although we've had that. For the most part, it's been rain. The good soaking kind. Unless it's been raining for 72 hours straight and then its the "oh look that stream just crested its banks and will I even be able to use this road tomorrow?" kind.

The town I'm in now was hit by Tropical Storm Irene a couple years ago. Although it wasn't hit nearly as bad as some other towns further south, people are just now finally getting their homes back the way they were. So, I'm sure I'm not the only one watching the rising river with trepidation.

Taken yesterday at around 4p. I'm a little scared to go down this morning and see where the water is. Because, as you can see, the only place for the water to go is over and out.

The rain is supposed to taper off today and we're supposed to have sun tomorrow. Everything is water logged and it's going to take some time to dry out. Unfortunately, we've got thunderstorms on tap for the rest of the week. Hopefully those don't materialize because we've got no place to put the water.

Who's got a drought? How can we get this water to you? Happy to share.

PS: did I mention today's high is 43 degrees? FARENHEIT? There's a foot of snow on the mountain today. It's Memorial Day weekend... enough already!!!
