We got some unexpected rain yesterday: FIVE INCHES of Rain! I didn't even have time to put most of my garden tools away before the deluge started:
|Great Googly Moogly! I don't think our rain gauge has ever held this much rain before |
(unless I forgot to empty it between rain storms). It only goes up to five inches.
(Note the waterlogged fields.)
|Following the storm, the sunlight came out brilliantly as the sun set in the west.|
|Trees lit up like gold against dark clouds.|
|Rain drops highlighted by the setting sun.|
|What a sky! (And more waterlogged fields.)|
|One side of a rainbow (looks a bit like a scary mushroom cloud, to tell the truth...)|
|And the other side of the rainbow ends at the gazebo.|
There were warnings of dangerous flash floods in parts of Iowa. I hope everyone is all right (and that your gardens aren't too beaten down by the rains).
Thanks for reading! -Beth
