OK, so after the crazy events of the last few days, we woke up to MORE rain.
This is the radar when we went to bed last night, and it moved through while we were sleeping and dumped another inch or so. It is slow to leave the area and there is more in the forecast for the afternoon! Flash Flood Watch in effect, and this is not what any of the streams or rivers need.
We called 2nd Family and asked how things were out there. Wet and muddy and sloshy...imagine that! Then "J" said "we've been picking up fish out of the driveway".
Excuse me? Fish?
Yep, minnows and a couple of other species. I said "send me a picture!" and she sent this to me:
Not sure what this one is, but it was one of three just like it that she saved and moved to their backyard pond. She also gathered up another random small fish, and a cup full of minnows, including a few in the chicken coop/yard!
Where do fish just come from out of nowhere? The only thing we can think is washed out of ponds on nearby properties? The water was standing and rushing down the driveway for the last few days so it's no telling where they came from. Still, kinda fun that fish are just appearing.
It's been a busy week at work (insurance biz) and so I am looking forward to the weekend. Of course, there is a strong chance of...wait for it...
