Only a few days after last week’s photos, the tall grass is nearly covered by water. Like most of the eastern US, we’ve had a lot of rain and cold, cloudy weather this spring. The day of this photo, the heavens opened and poured out water from mid-day on. Driving home from work, the rain was so intense, the wipers couldn’t clear the windshield. The only visibility was a brief glance right as the wipers wiped.
That followed days and nights of alternating torrents and slow, steady rain – with occasional tantalizing bits of blue sky and sunshine just to remind us what we were missing.
The next morning, it looked like this. Turns out we had 3.48 inches of rain in 24 hours. A ‘twenty-five year storm,” accompanied by floods, mudslides, and closed roads. That was only the 6th heaviest 24-hour rainfall recorded, but it was enough to make this our wettest spring ever.
My World is definitely waterlogged this week.
