Rain, rain, and more rain....Will it EVER stop???

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
We have never had THIS much rain before and guess what, we are scheduled to have more rain each day through next week!!! It's been raining almost constantly since the middle of May with only a few days break in between. I went to one of our parks on thursday where there is a lake and I couldn't believe how bad it has gotten. I wish we could send the rain to the forest fires where it's really needed.

This is the gatehouse into the park


This is the road leading to the gatehouse


This is one of the bathroom pavillions


Another road leading into the park


With more rain on the way I'm afraid the parks will be completely under water and will go over the spillways. I can't even do yard work because my yard is a constant swamp. People's homes have been flooded, are under water and have to be rescued. Texas has been hit very hard and there is no end in sight.

I sure hope you and yours are safe. The pics you posted are just devastating to see. I know you have to be concerned about your whole area.

Many positive thoughts and {{stop raining}} vibes for you.

Thanks...we received another inch of rain today. It was so bright and sunny and then WHAM! It came out of no where. Dropped an inch in half an hour. Where I live it is not too bad. It's all the surrounding cities around me. I fear that summer will be well over before it will be accessible again.

It just started to rain again! Probably get another inch or so from the look of how hard it is pouring. Think we will have to build an ark soon.

Yes the clouds are rolling in now. Looks like more rain for this evening. I now have huge mushrooms growing in my back yard in several spots. So just what we need, more rain-----NOT!

I know exactly how you feel. I know that North Texas has gotten hit even harder than us down here. It must be awful. Have you heard about Marble Falls?? 18 inches in a mere 6 hours last week!

I did hear about Marble Falls, and how terrible. So much flooding going on across the state, but worse in the north and central parts.

Again, stay high and dry. As for me, we don't live very near any lakes or rivers here in Allen, but all of the creek beds are starting to overflow in our region...I don't live by one of those either.

well, it rained last night while i was asleep... & at least once, maybe twice today. i'm gonna have to figure out some sort of covered feeding area for the ferals - i'm having to throw out too much food that's getting rained on... they have a nice, large doghouse, but it doesn't seem to be rain-proof

Well, it is Monday evening and it has been raining for past half hour. We are expected to have more tomorrow, the 4th and throughout rest of the week. On the news tonight they declared our county a disaster area.

Can you store the food somewhere else? Or find something to keep it protected?

i bought a doghouse, thinking i could use it as a covered feeding area - it leaks if we EVER have a dry day, i want to open it up, dry it out, & see if there's a way to waterproof it. otherwise, i'm gonna have to figure out some way to build them a little covered feeding station. the storage is inside - it's the food i'm putting out for the ferals to eat that's getting rained on.
