Rain, Rain, Go Away . . .

Sunday morning we awoke to this:

This is the field directly behind our house. You can see our chainlink fence and playset in some of the pictures. We figured the water was about 12-13 inches deep. The wind was blowing and created "waves" across this expanse of water. It did not come up into our yard however (we have a significant rise up from the lower portion of the yard to where the house actually sits) and later that afternoon had run mostly off. The storm drains and creeks nearby were just completely overwhelmed with several inches of rain in a very short period of time. The rain stopped about noon on Sunday and the drains had a chance to catch up a bit.

Eeek!! Was that the remnants of Ike paying you a visit? We were supposed to get heavy rain last night but only got a little bit (thankfully). I hope you can keep the kids away from it!
