HOW many inches of rain?
The NWS is reporting that we got over eight inches of rain since 5 AM.
EIGHT. In the past four hours.
I don't have a rain gauge, but I'm going to differ with that because I absolutely KNOW that it's been pouring down rain since just after midnight here in Collinsville, and Mom just called to say she'd heard we got twelve inches.
How can t w e l v e inches of rain in nine hours fall in a place where, just last summer, we were suffering the effects of a multi-year drought?
Rick still isn't home from Sherman. I wonder when he'll be able to?
A FOOT OF RAIN. Not a foot of snow, mind you. A foot of RAIN.
And we still have electricity and internet. Hooray!! I can survive a LONG time if I have those. hehe
