We had heavy rains all day Wednesday night through Thursday. I don't have an accurate measurement as I'd already taken in my rain gauge a week or so ago as in the past I have seemed to have a tendency to leave it out in the fall just a titch too long and have ended up with a cracked glass tube. More than once.
We've heard estimates of somewhere around 5" of rain has fallen.
I didn't think it would happen this fall but our pond filled up to over-flow capacity.
This was the picture of the pond in my last post.
And this is the way it looks this morning.
Many trees in the area went down because of the super-saturated ground.
Our temp has stayed above freezing so we've not seen any snow yet. But because we're nearly to the middle of November, I'm sure it's coming!
