I got most of our yard cut and decided to cut along the fence line going down the driveway. The sky started sprinkling a little bit on me but I thought I would continue and come back up on the other side of the fence before I stopped mowing.
Well, by the time I got back up to our house, the rain had stopped. So, I decided to mow another little area across the driveway where the guys park their trailers and to mow the drainage ditch in case the rain did come and was too wet for Mike to mow. Again, the sprinkles dripped down but stopped and I got another little segment of grass cut. Then, all of a sudden, the rain began to really fall!
I went to the barn with haste and parked the mower. Then, trotted pretty quickly to the house. Toby, who had been waiting on the porch, and I scurried into the house but not before we were pretty drenched. So, I just shucked out of my swimsuit and jumped into the shower. When I stepped out of the shower, I glanced out the window and was amazed at the sight. So, I pulled one of Mike's shirts on and went out with my trusty little camera.
Lots of water coming down that hill!
I sent those pictures off to Mike and Stephen and Bonnie to let them know what things looked like while they were at work. Then, I got a call from Stephen telling me that I needed to go out and take a look around to assess the storm damage. So...
Another view of the creek...
I pulled out onto the highway and turned in to the southern entrance to our compound to head back up the hill toward home. Here is the view heading up the driveway toward my mother-in-law's home. Look closely into the middle of the photo and you can see my soft-drink bottle setting down into that gully.
the flowerbed that I picked and poked at just this morning!
As I am composing this post, I have the television on where the weather reporters are showing photos and video of tornadoes which swept through southern Kentucky. Bless them and I hope folks weathered the storms safely!
