Poor Girl. She had to babysit today at 2. Right before she was to leave the sky turned a bit darker and we heard distant rumblings in the sky. She said, "What do you want to bet the second I step outside it's going to start raining." She even waited a couple of minutes before she started to walk over to her job that is a couple of blocks away. Sure enough, she walked outside and the sky started to open up. At first it was only a drizzle, so she set off. Within minutes, this:
The Boy and I stood on the back porch and watched in amazement as our yard flooded. It didn't take 5 minutes to turn from dry grass to a river and a pond. We had close to 2 inches of rain in about 10 minutes. It rained so hard we even got a tiny bit of water by the bulkhead in our basement, which hasn't happened before.
It was raining so hard we couldn't see across the yard. It looked like the sky opened up and dropped an entire ocean's worth of water in front of us. We couldn't move we were so astounded by the rain, the thunder, and the lightening. What a show we had. At one point our very reclusive neighbor poked his head about to watch, too.
It's still raining, and we're expecting more thunderstorms throughout the weekend. The Girl got home from babysitting. They drove her home after they put all her clothing through a dryer cycle. That kid is so philosophical about it all. She says that it's just the way it is, whenever it's going to rain, all she needs to do is go outside and it will start to pour. I guess she does have the luck of the Jewish. Stumble It! JBlog Me
