flooded out

a little bit too much rain in the last couple days could not be dealt with by the already saturated ground.

one of the roads out of town:

apparently about 80% of the townfolk have water in their basements. we are among the newest members of that group now. had to go out n buy a sump pump and dig a hole in the basement floor the other day.

the water is coming in from under the stairs and up from underneath the slab

we were supposed to have a rodeo this weekend, but that whole area where the water is, that is the rodeo grounds!!

Then since the sewers were over flowing with water, they had to turn off the town's running water! I was very thankful that I have a full rain barrel and have been enjoying the pure rain water.

It sure could be worse.
