Rain, Rain, Go Away

We have had a drought over the past few years but this year has been average or slightly above.  A couple of months ago, we had enough rain that our severe water restrictions were eased.  We can only water on odd or even days depending on our address but last year we couldn’t use outdoor water at all!

Well, we have had so much rain over the last week that we really are having too much water problems instead of too little water.  We have a rain gauge on the back deck and we have had over 8 inches of rain since this morning.  The schools are closed tomorrow and we decided to cancel our guild meeting because of the weather.  Hopefully it will slow down and we might get a break for a few days.

Since last week we have had between 17-18 inches of rain here at the house.  Some places around here have had even more.  We even made the national news tonight with all the flooding.  Several people have died because of floods.

We had some leaking of the roof at the quilt shop but nothing actually making fabric wet – thank goodness.  I am working there again tomorrow because one of the usual Tuesday girls has the flu.  I hope she is better soon since I am teaching most of the rest of the week, with Guild on Friday – busy, busy week!
