Two nights ago at 2:50 a.m. the loudest crack of thunder I have ever heard split the sky outside our house. The dogs leaped off their beds, barking at the weather gods. Huge volumes of water poured down in a short time. After a week of hot weather, the change was dramatic. The next day again, we had buckets of rain in short cloudbursts.
Today I thought I lived in Panama, the way the rain came down in streams.
Our soil is sandy, so any water that comes down soaks away quickly, but so much water came down in such a short time that part of the yard looked like the Great Lakes.
Remember my garden being built in April?
That, and a little bit of (back-breaking) work.
Pit, from Texas, sent links to the “deluges” that came his way earlier this year.
