Rain, Rain, go away

This is getting to be very annoying!

July 3 2007 - Rain 018This picture doesn’t do the scene justice – but you might be able to see a small whitecap on the right side of this image – where the water is actually running uphill onto my street from the adjoining street.

The water is two feet deep there.  It would need to rise another 8 feet to endanger my house, and that’s not going to happen (he hopes!).

But in the last 14 days it has rained an amazing amount – over four inches here just today.  The ground is saturated – we are running out of places for the water to go.

I would have ventured out further to get a better shot, but this is an electrical storm, and I don’t feel that lucky!
