Five Feet and Rising

We had 6 1/2" of rain last night and it's still raining a little and blowing hard. The lake level is rising fast. These are a couple of boats that loosened their shackles and went on an adventure before hitting the downwind shore. It'll go down in a few days, it's just coming in faster than it can get out. Oakwood sits on a gravel knoll so we're fine. Albert Lea may have few wet basements, but it could be worse, there was 10" in New Richland to the north. The towns to the north and east that are on rivers and streams are getting pretty wet, setting records for flood water height.

Eh yep. Heard you had a little rain.

The problem is that 6 1/2" is only a 24 hour total. It's been raining for a few days. Sun on Sunday they say. Kinda looking forward to it.

So much for complaining about the rain in Oregon! Forecast here is for sunny 80's for the next 4-5 days (good toad warming weather).

Stay high and dry!

Young Toad,
Get a good book, find yourself a good basking rock in the sun and kick back.
