Water water everywhere...

For the past few days it's rained. And rained. And rained.
The ground has been saturated. And yesterday we got another 5.5 inches.
So it flooded.
When there was a brief break in the rain, we decided to go out and play in it...
like any good hillbillies would do.


The Man and I drove around for a bit.
Every road around us was covered in deep water and impassible.








Isn't our grass pretty?






The creek was all the way up to the barn, which has only happened one other time.
Our basement flooded, which has also only happened once.
So we're sloppy. And stinky. And sticky. And muddy.

But happy! Hopefully it will begin to dry out today and tomorrow.

Your pics are great! It looks like your family had a lot of fun. But to be honest, the mud is freaking me out =D. Ironically, I used to play in the flood. I was born and lived in the Philippines in my early childhood and it flooded when rain and typhoons hit. My grandparent's little town turned into a community pool. Looking back, I realize those floods weren't good for a lot of reasons, but they were fun! Cheers to finding fun in life's inconveniences!
