We had RAIN...

Lots and lots of rain. In our back yard we measured 4" and according to my Weather Bug the area had up to 8". Local (small) rivers and creeks are running full all around the area. They are dumping into Harlan and Glenn Elder.

So (as nosey as I am) we decided to go see and took a drive South of Glade. This is a pic of Bow Creek still running hard.

What I found very interesting about being on this bridge was..... the county crew that was there measuring the depth of the water .... or whatever they were measuring. I decided I really didn't want to tarry long. heehee

To those of you reading this that are not familiar with our area.... this is NOT the normal. We rarely get 2" of rain .... let alone 8". And our creeks don't run .... they trickle. And my goodness...we're forecast for more rain for the next three days.

Gosh I'm going to be sad when the Olympics end tonight. :(
I have so enjoyed them. Way to go America!!

Doesn't look like we're going to have a sunny day today. Overcast and very cool. 65 degrees right now. Just a slight breeze to move the air through the house with the doors and windows open. I love the Fall when I can open everything up and enjoy the cool down.

Have a great day everyone....
