When it rains


No, we don't *usually* have a stream running through our property. Records kept since 1871 say Saturday's rain marks worst in more than century for our area. This is what 6 point something inches of rain falling in one day does to our yard. Luckily we kept power so our sump pump just kept plugging away.

Chicago was on the news here with all the rain you're getting. Send some our way...please! We could surely use it on our grass. Stay dry and bake lots of chocolate chip cookies :)

Well, we're a little bit jealous. "Ike" gave you guys all the rain, but we got all the wind. Our yard really needs the moisture. Maybe you could just ship some of that water our way!

Spontaneous creeks huh? Our area got quite a bit to. It was hard finding a route home from our trip to Ohio because of all the flooding at the IL/IN border
