Started raining around 10pm last night, I dumped 1.5" out of the gauge this morning!  Started raining again around 8 am, 1.75" when I came in around 11 am!

I'll bet your stream isn't usually that large.  I hope you dry out a bit.

There is a sewer line underground, in normal weather, water comes up from around it into the yellow oil drain pan on the far right of the 3rd picture.   It started coming up through a crawdad hole in the yard, so I piped it to the pan.  Pan stays full in all but the driest of conditions!  ~~  Lowell

We are getting close to normal rain down here for a change. But the lakes could use a bit more to get them back full!

Looks like there is going to be a lot more Lowell. 50% is the lowest chance of rain every day this week.

We got over 5" Saturday and /sunday, no clue what we got yesterday, and around two inches last night.

They are saying a total around 7" for the rest of the week.

Flooding is pretty widespread across the whole state.

I'm roughly 100 miles north of you, but it usually comes up through your area before it gets to me?

We ended up with 4.5" since Sunday evening!  Worst lightning last night that we've had in a long time, around 1:30-2:30 in the morning!  ~~  Lowell

Yeah I think I heard a rumble or two this morning myself. Pretty unusual as nothing wakes me up! But the wife said it was awful??

Here in the west-central part of Missouri  I have had close to 7 inches so far since Memorial day.....  3" on Monday, 2" yesterday, and I just measured 1 3/4" in the rain guage this morning.  Sure glad I got my sweet corn planted on Sunday! 

I took a pic this morning.  My garden has washed out some, but at least not in the middle like it used too. Later in the summer when it has dried out I will move the dirt back to this end again.

today was the first clear day since Sunday here. NWS said that March,April and May was the wettest spring Iowa has recorded in the 141 yrs of record keeping. 16.8 inches in 3 months. Flooding everywhere. I mowed this afternoon and turned up water on the tires and the lawn shows nice stripes, Mud Stripes that is.

Same here!  I was up your way Wednesday to pick up the JD 100.  Poured on us while we were on I 35/I 80 between the river & where I 80 turns west about 5 pm.  And I don't like that kind of traffic in dry weather!  ~~  grnspot

We probably met going different directions Wednesday then. The office where i work is just north of the Pilot Oil on Douglas.
Just as you turned south on I80/35 it is the first exit. I get off at 4:30 so would have been going east.

I never would have believed it 27 yrs ago,, but you can actually get used to the traffic. We do not really have a rush hour in Des Moines. It is more like rush minutes. If you can run 10 minutes off the hour and half hour it is nt too bad.
Which is why I arrive at work around 7;35 AM when I do nnot start till 8:00. It also gives me plenty of time to get my coffee and wear down any road rage before I am expected to be nice to people.
