The Drought is Officially Over

Yesterday it rained, I mean really rained. Almost the whole backyard had about 6 inches of water in it. There's watermarks on all the poles and trees.
It was made worse by my future neighbor who put about 8 inches of nasty gray fill on the lot next door, but in all fairness, I gotta say, it did flood a little before.
On some of the neighbors houses, the water marks from the flooding are above the bottom of their doors.. Hope they stayed dry inside.
If you drive down our street and turn left, at the little curve there is always a big puddle there when it rains. Yesterday, that puddle was connected to the puddle in our backyard.
Another cool thing is that the ground was percolating, there were all kinds of air bubbles coming up from the ground. Most were continuous streams of small bubbles. There were several big ones with big bubbles going "Plop, plop, plop, sending up a big bubble every second or so. Wonder if there are caves down there????
Right now it's sunny.

Wow it must have been super dry for the ground to bubble!
I bet your grass grows fast now.

It would be nice if the rain could fall softly instead of coming down all at once. Last Friday when we went to the county fair there was a deluge--so the fair was shut down. No fun at all.
