Rain, Rain, Go Away

It's been raining a very long time----days and days.   In the summer of 2008 I built a ditch for the water to drain out of our back yard (and the neighbors yard) down hill to the front yard so the water would not go under the house.

This channel runs gradually down hill from the back yard by the patio, down the side of the house, and half way down the front side yard.  When we get a lot of rain it does it's job marvelously.

I was taking pictures to put on my blog, and my hubby said let's go get gas, so I took my camera along.
Two houses down this is what the manhole cover was doing.

Just around the corner from our house and our daughters house we have a tiny creek.  It ain't so tiny now.

Down stream just a little.  We got gas---$99 to fill up---eek!

After we got gas, we went further down stream to take pictures, but my batteries died and I didn't have my extra one with me.  Too bad --they would have been good.
