by 5:46pm.
i was rather surprised it cleared that quickly, good thing the rain stopped for a bit.
the garden pathways were still under water for another hour. when i was looking about 8pm the pathways were clear and i could walk around. all that work i did on drainage paid off. i will be able to get back out there sooner than i expected.
we've had water across the gardens in past years like this, but it has never gone across the road out front nor has the west ditch flowed backwards (from north to south).
more rain still likely, but i'm hoping it won't be the 2+ inches the weather forecast says.

compared to many people who had more flood damage we came out pretty well. only some moved around decorative things and pieces of wood, a little gravel washed out at the end of the driveway and me having to sweep up some wood chips off the cement.
some of the tomatoes did split and i know when i pick cherry tomatoes a lot of them will be split too, but otherwise we came out ok. none of the raised beds were washed out so the crops are mostly intact.
*whew!*

Over here, we managed to be in the 'eye' of the storm, so to speak, and only accumulated 1.5 inches over Thursday and Friday, most of that on Thursday.

:) nice to not have to water for a change!
however, most of the gardens here now need it to be a little dryer to get the beans to dry in the pods without rotting and the tomatoes to ripen in the sun. we did pick some tomatoes today and they were ok, with a few that had split. not enough to can yet.
i was watching the radar during this storm and for a change instead of us being in the middle of either side of the storm with us being dry it channeled a ridge of red/orange downpour right over us for two hours. a half mile on either side of us and it was much lighter.
the rain gauges topped out at 11 inches of rain for the past two days.
i was happy to nap and read most of today. tomorrow i'll be putting up beets.
