It's Raining, It's Pouring. . .

We have been having some pretty severe summer Thunderstorms lately.
These storms have been bringing a lot of rain.
Almost like a flash flood, the rain comes down so fast and hard.
These pictures are my neighbors yard to the back corner from our house.
I took them from our backyard deck today.
A few weeks ago the water went all the way to their basement windows.
Andy and some other neighbors helped them by getting all of their belongings off the basement floor, because the water was coming in through the windows.


We were really hoping that the lightning would stop so we could have a neighborhood swim party in it. :-)

Oh my goodness!! That is crazy. Send some of that water down south - we could use some water in our lakes!

Looks like they should just make that area into a pond. Crazy. it is raining hard here right now. I am kind of enjoying this summer with all the rain. It seems that it rains everyday, yet it is nice for part of the day too so we enjoy it all. Hope it doesn't flood their house anymore. That is sad.
