Watery Way


I have been one no dwelling could contain
When there was rain....

July 8, 2010
Swiftly fell the rain.......

Michael rushing to get his car to higher ground

What a time for a loose battery cable..... (note the water in the yard across the street!)


Trevor going to fetch some of our neighbors pool supplies that floated out into the street
This was about as deep as it got.
KK & Ashtonista...always time to strike a pose
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk. The rain makes running pools in the gutter. The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—

  8. Just got back from southeast Missouri, where I saw brown fields of corn, thirsty for water. I wished that we could send them some of our Oklahoma rain!

  14. Hope everything is ok, but your post is up-beat so that's positive! We lived at the bottom of a hill and I can remember as a kid the water being up to my waist as it rushed by. Fun for kids!

  17. Sending a sweet and rain-free hello from Frog Hollow Farm! OMG - that was some rainstorm. It rained like that here in NJ on Saturday morning, just a tremendous well needed downpour - except the flowers got kind of smashed. We didn't have any flooding around our house, I hope your street and yard drained off quickly and that your son's car is okay. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment - I appreciate each and every one of them. Ciao, bella!

  22. Nacy...lol. We had a bunch of rain for about a week here in Houston and I caught a big bunch of teen agers coming out of the ditch/greenbelt that runs thru our neighborhood. They had gone into the water to use boogie boards & had some fun. I smiled and had to laugh with them.

  23. Holy cow! I missed this post on your crazy weather. Did you get any damage to your yard or basement from it? I would have been afraid the kids would have floated away!
