It's Raining, It's Pouring

It has been an exceptionally wet spring here in Ohio.  Yesterday morning around 9:00 A.M. it was raining heavily, and I thought, "Well, I won't get any gardening done today."  The forecast said that the sun would come out later in the day.  The rain did stop, but, as the English say, we only had a peek of sun.  It was much too wet to do any work outside.  Then, in the late afternoon the heavens opened again, and there was a lengthy downpour.

The back yard was a swamp.

In front, the street was flooded, and the area where the gas company had been digging was a muddy mess.

Around 11:00 P.M. once again there was a brief shower.  This morning it is cloudy, but it is not supposed to rain.  The flooding is gone, but it is still much too wet to do any gardening.  With fingers crossed, I hope that I can get some work done tomorrow.


  1. Wow. We have finally had two rains, the first since last September and our hearts are rejoicing as are our gardens and
    lawns. Plus the temps have dropped at least 10 degrees, if not more..........Yippee.
