An hour later, DH woke me without a kiss, to inform me we needed to set the trash pump up to keep the house dry, as it was pooling deeply in back. He braved the cold downpour, while I wrangled the power cord and plugged it in.
So far, we've gotten 3" rain in 3 hrs. That's a lot of water! Thr river Nile out back is flowing well. I'm sure the intermittent creek out back is running heavy by now too. As big and as heavy as this storm seems to be, I can tell I will be home most of the day monitoring the water situation. Joy. And of course today I need to run to town, take a dog to the vet, etc. And NWS now says flash flooding in the area, which DH confirmed on his drive into work this morning. He said there were several sketchy low water crossings he had to navigate in the Civic.
And it's still raining...
|The white pipe beyond the gate is the pump setup.|
|The pool is almost completely full!|
Final total here at the casa? 4.3" of rain. And DH made it home just fine.
