My Goodness It Rained!

The storm yesterday brings a new meaning to "When It Rains It Pours!" And man, did it ever pour. We lost power about noon and didn't regain it until I hooked up the generator, which was about 7:00 p.m. We went from three feet lower than the pier to over the pier in about three hours. It was a sight to behold. The water in this photo is almost over the dam. The spillway handled it, but barely. I've never seen water in the pasture like this. It was like a thousand rivers.

Amazing amount of water. We think over 8 inches in about 3 hours.
The winds were in excess of 50 mph. We lost two more trees. But, we needed the water.
Check out the small pond flowing into the large pond.
This is the first time I've seen water breach the bridge. You can't believe the amount of water coming from Johnny Holmes' pasture and pond into our pond.
