Fun in the Mud


We have had rain since I don't know when. People all around us are getting evacuated and lots of water is moving in. They are having to let water out of a dam in our news viewing area and it's going to affect so many people in the mandatory evacuation. Tornadoes and hail, it's been a rough spring so far. It's still rumblin' thunder here but the weather man has promised a break even if it's short lived. Good through Saturday and then it's on again come Sunday. I wish the rain would save up a little for when we need it come July and August!

The lake has almost reached to top of our levee here. That white thing floating out there is the back to the paddle boat. There is another pond out of view that overfills and then drains into ours making it fill up even faster. The paddle boat is resting on the dock. The spirea bush is drowning! and the jon boat nearly sank but the hubby saved it. My basement is sloshy and my husbands shop is full of rain water. Of course you know how men are, he went to fix how the water getting in (the gutters couldn't handle the amount of rain we were getting) and he broke the gutter while digging a trench. Another trip to the Home Depot, jeesh... cha ching $$

One good thing about all the rain as my son says... it makes mud!


I had to share these hilarious pictures I took during a break from the rain yesterday. He's like a little mud sprite! haha... those socks and underwear will never be the same.

I hope you're all safe from the storms.

  1. One of my all time favorite pictures of my girls when they were little is of them playing in the rain- priceless! It is always somewhere front and center where I can it daily :)
    Wouldn't it be so nice if Mother Nature would even things out a bit? We too have gotten tons of rain, enough that I rarely have to water. The problem is, I get out of the habit of watering by the time we REALLY need it :)
    Stay safe- these storms can be so scary (I made my kids sleep downstairs last night- they weren't happy about it, but at least they were safe...)
    Hugs,
    Steph

  7. We are having severe weather as well but not with all that water piling up...not yet anyway. The rain woke me up this morning because it was pounding so hard on the windows I thought they would break. Right now it's dark and thundery so I guess more rain is coming. Take care:)

  8. Happy birthday, Jaime. I hope you enjoyed a hopefully rain-free day. The storms have been so frightening! We got off lucky today - and only endured a short storm during the mid-afternoon hours. Asher is adorable - boy + mud = joy! LOL Take care, Theresa
