Water Logged | Wordless Wednesday

Flooding in our back yard.

Rain and storms continue nearly daily at our house. Very strange weather for this area which is usually in drought mode this time of year.  Our ground is so saturated that any rain causes flooding.  Lots of the country roads and bridges are washed out.  

Most of the rain comes with wicked lightning and thunder.  And wind.  Can't forget the wind.  We lost about half of our little orchard to wind that simply blew the trees right out of the ground.  Unlike many who have lose outbuildings or roofs, we're okay so far.

We wish we could share this wet bounty with all the folks who are praying for rain.

The dogs have been so depressed they declined posing for Wordless Wednesday photos.   Rudy has about had it with all the storm noise.  Jeffie is nervous, too.  All three dogs want their (dry) yard back.

Rosie's ears say it all.

Yes, Rosie. It is raining in the front of the house, too.


  1. Wow that looks like a lot of rain. We're having a dry spell in my area when it should be monsoon season. Weird.

  2. Oh no, poor doggies! Some rain is fun, good for puddle jumping but this is too much especially if Thunder is present, then it's really no fun. Hope you guys see some dry time real soon!

  3. Good grief! That is a lot of water. I am so sorry that you are having so much rain. It seemed as if we had about six weeks of constant rain, but we are in the clear this week. Hope your skies clear soon. ♥

  4. Oh, those sad ears DO say it all. Man, the weather is just crazy. I sure wish we could take some of that rain off your hands!

  5. Awww your poor babies! I know how depressed Titan gets so I totally feel your and their pain. Hope y'all dry out soon!

  6. We hear about Missouri and the rain all the time. Most likely, it will stop and this fall you will have a drought!

  7. wow that is a bunch of water, you have your own lake, now my dogs would love that.

  8. That's a lot of water! We have had too much rain too but at least we are in the city and just the streets flood. Last night we had severe storms again, the park will never dry out this summer. Hope the dogs get to enjoy their back yard soon. Love Dolly


Go ahead... bark at us!
