Drying out after the rain

As I mentioned in my last entry here.... we had a HUGE rain storm on Saturday night.

I was a bit worried because I was planning to have my doll house club at my house on Sunday afternoon to have a picnic.



Well thanks to exception drainage you would never know it had rained like that. AND the day itself turned out to be beautiful. Temps in high 70s and NO humidity. I felt really lucky.



If you want to see the picnic pics click here to my friend Liz's BLOG The Fragrant Muse.
She covered the event so well with her picturesvthere is no point for me to duplicate it here.

So be sure to check it out.

It rained and rained and rained and then it all went away.

I started to post this yesterday but got sidetracked. I took a lot of "little movies" of the heavy storm we got but for some reason blogger only wanted me to upload one. Here it is.




And here are a couple of pictures of the rain running through out yard. Those are NOT real streams....... but for the time of the storm they were raging whitewater. Well it seemed like it anyway.




We are thankful that we have good drainage so by Sunday morning it was all drained away and dry again.
