After such a long dry season, I was glad to see some rain. However, the last 4 days have been too much rain!
The first 2 pictures are the ditches that we cleaned out by our house to let the rain flow under our driveway. We got them ready just in time!
The next 3 pictures are of the road to our house. 5 months ago we had road work done, but there were a few sections without any gravel. They started working on putting the gravel down 2 days ago, but ran out of gravel and were going to start again today. I do not think they did anything today though. What a mess!!!!
The last picture is how much rain they are getting off of the hill and in some places it is going over the roads. The rain storm has lasted 2 hours now and it appears to be getting a little better now.
I sent these 2 bug pictures to Sarah, who really likes bugs, and here is what she said:
"Cutest little beetle! And a colorful stink bug"
"If you boil them in water the stink bug water will protect you from mosquitos!"
"....and then you can eat the leftover carcasses"
Ummm...I am not going to be eating stink bugs, don't worry!
