This is what it looks like when we get over an inch an hour in my ditch and the guy across the street front yard. It has actually got over my drive way and the ditch os about 4 1/2' deep at my drive.

One time we had four inches come down in an hour, and I thought Noah was coming to pick us up then.

 

You don't have a basement do you?

Woke up a 4:50 this morning to the sound of 1/2" hail hitting our bedroom window. Got up to find the water was running across the road over the driveway and had water in the neighbor's garage. It's back down into the ditches now. The guy just next to me had a blocked culvert pipe that we had to get un plugged to get water away from his house. Power has been out for about an hr now, but the water is resciding. According to NOAA we have got 2 1/2" rain in just over an hour.

Glad you got the culvert opened up. Don't float away!

No one builds basements here. Our next house will have one one higher ground.

We made it through round 1 this morning without much to do.  We have round two this afternoon, supposed to start around 4 PM.  I hope you all keep safe and all this passes quickly.

My main floor is my basement, house is built on a cement pad because the water table is at four feet and there are springs everywhere. When we trenched the waterline out to the barnyard we hit five springs at about four feet down just in crossing the front yard, a distance of about 300 yards. Fortunately we don't get tornados here or the house would have blown away long ago. The living area of the house is on the second floor and my deck gives me a great view. I'm sorry for your rain woes.IMG_1487.JPG

 Thanks, and you're right, HDWildBill, pic taken the year before we lost him.  And don't worry Kenny, the snow seldom gets as high as the deck, lol.

It's called a Hackberry tree and it's junk wood that stinks when it burn and goes up very fast with not much BTU value.
