I expect to lose my Internet connection at any moment.

We are swimming for it here!

Good grief! I hope everything is okay. Wish we could figure out how to get the weather to work so that rain would fall when and where it's needed; we sure could use some.

Blessings. Stay safe!

Gayle,
I wish that you COULD have some of this rain. We're saturated, and the rain is still coming down.

I'd say that we're not now in near-drought conditions, which was worry a few weeks back.

I'm just glad you are okay, AOW. That's the way it is here; we're rather used to it. Either it's a drought or a flood. We never are in danger of being flooded out though, as our farm is on a slope.

Brooke,
The basement is seeping, and the telephone was out of order for part of today. Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow too. Ugh!

I thought it was going to rain in Saint Joseph, Missouri Sunday, so I hurried to get the lawn mowed. No rain? The next time it dries out just enough for you to mow, hurry get er done the rainny season will end. I hope all is well and the rain ends soon.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I hope you don't have a finished basement?

Brooke,
Our basement is more of a cellar, though there is some dilapidated concrete on the floor's surface. Half of our basement is a crawl space. Old house!

We wouldn't be having problems with our basement right now were it not for the neighbors one block over who illegally paved a dirt road and didn't put in storm drains. The County won't take them to task for what they did, and their paving of that old dirt alleyway has rendered several nearby properties here nearly undevelopable. Here we sit on a high hill, yet we require sump pumps, most of which were not needed prior to that paving.

My consolation is that the houses of those law-breaking neighbors are probably awash right now. I don't normally gloat over the misfortunes of others, but these neighbors knowingly went ahead with that paving, without regard for the rest of us.

Some areas not in my neighborhood are now being evacuated!

This just appeared on AOL's news page:

WASHINGTON (June 27) -- The nation's capital readied for more of the heavy rains that slathered highways with mud, while the National Hurricane Center was tracking a stormy area off North Carolina that it said could develop into a tropical depression at any time Tuesday....

I've seen less rain from hurricanes than from this stalled out system.

We had a crapload of rain a week or so ago here in St. Louis. I'm glad it has moved on east, but maybe it should just go away altogether.

Oh, my goodness! Stay safe!
