There have been some bad storms rolling through eastern ND lately. We're getting "swaddling practice" from tucking Mookie in really tight to calm him during the storms. I would guess that we got about 8 inches of rain since Thursday. We don't have a rain gage up yet, but the radio said that a neighboring town got about that much.
This is a shot of the neighboring field. The tree line on the left is half on our property. We own lakeside property!
This is a shot of a ditch with about 5 feet of water flowing through it.
Same ditch, with the standing water in the fields showing behind.
When we moved to ND we expected some spring flooding, so we made sure to get a "higher" house and prepare ourselves for road closures. This flooding is every bit as bad as it was this spring! Talking to some people at church today, nobody ever remembers it raining this much. Lots of crops are lost.
On the bright side, my garden is doing pretty well. The weeds are growing like weeds! It's hard to get out there to weed with so little energy... at least a few of my plants are doing great :)
