Debby did a bit more than fill up the pond though and we are lucky that we didn't have the amount of flooding that others in the state suffered - washed out roads, rivers exploding over their banks. Despite Florida's need for rain, this was not exactly the way we wanted the problem solved.
During a break in the rain, I was able to snap a few photos of the pond.
Just a few minutes later the rain started up again and within ten minutes the yard was flooded...again.
|I wish I could have gotten a better shot of the neighbor's yard in this one. Their yard is virtually flat and it was nothing but water.|
|I wonder if all this water will take care of the fire ants and moles...|
The next set of photos are from after the storm passed and the sun broke through the clouds.
|Those ripples? 50 gajillion tadpoles just eating and growing and plotting.|
|This was the high water mark. I was amazed that the water level dropped so quickly after the storm. That might be a testament to how low the aqueduct levels are but I'm not waterologist so don't quote me on that!|
|Junie very much appreciates having a pond...Guess how many bathes she'll be getting in the coming weeks?|
