Rain, rain ... go away!!!
It's been raining pretty much nonstop for about 48 hours & our poor backyard is getting awfully soupy!!! It stopped raining about 3 hours ago & we're supposed to have only a 30% chance of rain overnight ... thank goodness! Lots of roadways are water-logged, and city departments have put up lots of barricades, caution cones, and warning signs!The good thing is that the zinnias are getting lots and lots of water. I don't think I'll need to water any of our plants for at least a week! Everything is quite saturated & the sump pump is working hard to keep water out of our basement. I've heard from a number of people in the area that their basements are beginning to flood ... it's not over yet!
