I have some blog posts on automatic this morning, but don’t let that fool you.  I’m spending the day cleaning up after last night’s torrential rains sent water into my basement.

Never mind the last 5 days of rain (which is hard to do), last night’s storm was huge all on its own.  My across-the-street neighbor’s pile of gravel got displaced by the torrent.  The fence between my house and one of my next-door neighbors apparently had a river going through it, because pine straw, pine cones and leaves from my trees got caught on the fence. 

And add to that the rain we’d had that had swelled creeks and ponds already, and flooding is a big issue today.  Roads over creeks that are never closed due to flooding are closed today.

As Pooh would say, "Oh bother."
