What should have been an uneventful twenty minute ride home today took me one hour and 45 minutes. Why? We had three inches of rain in two hours. On the drive home, it kept getting darker, and darker, and then the sheets of rain came, then I encountered hail, a lot of street flooding, and the McDonald sign broken in half laying across the street. I was re-directed at three different locations due to trees blocking the road. More than once, I thought the car would stall out going through high water.
I made it home at last! I cant remember another day where I have been this happy to get home and in a hot bath, or more grateful to myself for having cooked Salisbury steaks yesterday for our dinner tonight. When I was finished in the bath, the veggies and rice were finished on the stove.
Now we can relax and look at the water in the backyard: (I know you cant tell due to my limited photography skills, but the dark shadows at the tree line is standing water - a lot of water)
