After The Storm

By
Real Estate Agent with Bradfield Properties 532238

While we still have a 50% chance of rain in the area for the next several days, it looks like (knock on wood!) that the major flooding is over, at least on our place.  So this morning we're pumping out the flooded storm shelter.

It was difficult getting a photo, on a sunny summer morning, of what is essentially a dark hole in the ground, but here it is.  The line that you see inside is the water level (understand, several people, including tall men, can stand upright in this shelter when it's not full of water - the grey thing on the left in the shelter is the top of the rail for the steps going down into it).  The black cat is Beezl, our 17+ pound 12 year old black cat who, along with our Morgan horses, supervises every project we do to make sure we do it right. 

 Storm Shelter Flooded

 

More cheerfully, while things are a bit soggy, the world as seen from our front porch is once more a beautiful, green place, washed clean of the dust of the recent drought by the storms that blew through. 

The Yard The Morning After The Storm

Mother Nature has her moods, as do we all - stormy one day, putting on her party dress the next.  This is just another event in a long life of learning to live with her in relatively peaceful co-existence.

That is amazing to see your storm shelter flooded.  I think we are hoping for a few days to dry out but I don't think we are going to get it in the Dallas area.

Linda, sorry for the delay in responding (we're STILL drying out down here - had sunshine and a rainbow today!  (Which, of course, means that it was raining.  Again.) 

janeAnne, we're hanging in there, and taking this as an opportunity to do some sort of organizing of all of those papers.  I've also decided that when we get that done, I'm pulling out all the family photo albums and putting names/dates/places on the back of all the photos I can so that no one else has to sit and go, "Now, who is this person in this photo and why should I care?"
