Well, today was a washout at the farm. We actually started to head out there and I noticed dark skies on the horizon. We checked the radar and large storms were moving into the area.
Since many of the roads around the farm flood in heavy rains, and tomorrow is a work day, we figured it was best not to head out to the farm today and get stranded (though I couldn't think of a better place to BE stranded, ha).
The farm has already received over two inches (and counting) of rain today, according to 2nd Family.
This is the National Weather Service forecast for our area over the next few days. We are near the white dot, just outside of the 7 1/2" rainfall total...in the 4" area! This is a lot of rain coming.
UPDATE: We have had tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings, funnel clouds in the area, hail in spots, and some areas have already had from 5" to 6" of rain. We are currently under a tornado watch and a flash flood watch.
Well, at least the dewberries and fruit trees and garden will have lots of water.
Hope your weekend was good and not a washout.
