Rain has been the theme of the day for several days now and supposedly will continue as the theme for almost another week!! I think we've had almost 5 inches so far and are schedule for another 5 or so. That's a lot of water. There are more than 27,000 gallons of water per acre for every inch of rain that falls on that acre...that's about 35,000 gallons of water on a standard football field. To get a feel for that I went to one of the lakes in our neighborhood and took some photos of the dam...it was kind of spectacular. I could not get close because of the heavy rain and my camera is NOT waterproof...this shot is a significant crop but I wanted to show you the huge amount of water and debris that are coming over that dam.
