Too Much Rain!

It started raining on Wednesday and rained until Friday! Non-stop, not kidding! It wasn't just sprinkling, it was down pouring. We got 12 plus inches of rain. Here are some pictures of the damage around our house. Many of the neighboring cities are really flooded and some towns are evacuating people.

 A bean field full of water.
The crops were almost ready to be picked, but now the farmers are going to have to wait longer.
 Water in a corn field, it almost covers the corn!
 Many roads and bridges were full of water and no was allowed to drive on them.
 The river over flowing into the ditches and roads.
 Another road and bridge closed.
 The river is so high!
 This was a gravel road! Now it's a lake.
Someone on a four-wheeler checking out the damage.

Pictures cannot even begin to explain the damage from the rain.

Oh my, I am so sorry to see all the water. We know how hard that can be and it's so hard for the farmers. Hope you home isn't directly effected.

You certainly have our thoughts and good wishes. I hope you haven't had too much damage yourselves. Hope you get some sunshine!

Holy Smokes! That is a lot of rain!!! We had a little rain spurting from the sky this weekend, but not even close to that!!!

Oh my goodness! The pictures look so horrible! The weather this past year has been insane! We hit 107 yesterday, but more triple digits projected for the week! Hard to imagine other places in the world are flooding when we are a desert here!

Please do take care! Hopefully the flood damage will not be too bad (although by the pictures, it looks pretty significant). Feel horrible for the farmers working crops....

Oh my goodness! These pictures bring back memories of the 4th of July weekend when we got the last real rain of the summer but also had lots of flooding too. I hope you were spared any damage. Oh...I just saw that the sun is shining again. I hope it's still doing that today. Enjoy your Tuesday.
