Rain Rain go away…

We are close to setting a new October record for rainfall in our neck of the woods. That means people in low lying areas are in misery. Folks all around us are using boats as the only means to get to their homes. I pass one home built on stilts that has a party barge tied to the front porch, evidently their means of reaching home. Businesses on the area lakes are suffering because they are totally surrounded or completely flooded by water and paying customers can’t get to them.
We’re up on a hill so we aren’t in the thick of it, but lots of our friends are staying in motels or with relatives. Sad part is, there is no end in sight. No one is predicting when the rain will finally stop or when the waters will go back to normal levels.

    We broke some records as well, though we didn’t quite reach the top spot for rain (at least officially since that’s measured at DFW). Some local areas did, though, with almost 15 inches in October (about 11 inches where I live). One thing we did accomplish: We far surpassed any previous October for the least amount of sunshine. We were 40 hours below average and almost 500 minutes below the previous record. I can’t complain; it sure helped with the drought.
