Over 4 inches! Thats what we got in 3 hours on Friday morning. The 3 hours I was up at the chicken houses. Hauling around bucket fulls of dead chickens in the rain is not one of my favorite hobbies. I looked like a drownded rat. When I stepped out of the chicken truck at the freezer shed (where I dump the dead chickens), my shoe went underwater. Wet socks and dead chickens. A match made in heaven.
Anyways, want to know what 4 inches of rain does to newly cleared land and a driveway?
My neighbor asked if he could put a catfish in it.
Don't think 4 inches was all we received though. Since Friday morning, we have had 6 inches of rain. The builder is now supposed to come lay off the foundation on Thursday, but its supposed to rain on Wednesday, and we're already under a flood watch for that, so it's not looking promising. You know it's getting a bit ridiculous when your builder's wife calls and says "I'm sorry, but we've decided not to build you a house. We're building you an ark instead."
Glad somebody's enjoying the rain!
Here's a blueberry cobbler I made with blueberries I picked from a neighbor's yard last year!
