That's right, between sundown and sunup 7.42" of rain landed on our heads!
Last time we had a single rainfall of this magnitude was April of 2009 when we had 12" in a single day and 16" for the month!
Now you might not think a good rainfall is blog-worthy but for the last 3 out of 4 years we have been behind in rainfall; almost a whole year's worth of rain behind. The April long term average is 3 inches, we got less than 1 for the month this year.
There hasn't been this much water in the pond in years. In fact I was photographing a dried up mud-hole here a couple years ago. Today, another 18 inches and it would be running over the spillway!
And there's more headed for the pond. It's been 6 hours since the rain stopped and this is supposed to be a walkway, not a stream. . .
