The next morning...

...tropical storm Debby left us with "waterfront property". Reports are that we received 14.5" [36.8 cm] in 36 hours.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Wow! That really was a lot of rain!

29 Jun 2012 7:52am

@CElliottUK: Yes, it was a lot in a short period.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

It gave you a nice new pond :-)
I think we had something similar yesterday, it took my mate three hours to walk home from work just eight miles away!

29 Jun 2012 8:42am

@Curly: Thanks for the link, Curly ... yours was bad too. The sad part is that insurance companies won't pay for flood damage unless people carry "flood insurance" ... and many who normally don't see high water, don't carry it.

Mhelene from Paris, France

Wow ...So you have a little lake !

29 Jun 2012 9:53am

@Mhelene: Yes, our normally dry water retention area filled completely. This morning there is only a puddle in the bottom.

Arash from Brisbane, Australia

Beautiful ! Colors are gorgeous ! :-)

Great angle for this nice capture

@Nazzareno: Thank you very much!

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Wow, my daughter who's in Florida at present said it was a little damp by I hadn't realised how much, hope you're all ok

29 Jun 2012 1:03pm

@Doug: Florida is a large state, and I don't know where your daughter is, but yes, "damp" fits quite well! ;D ... PS: Yes, we are fine ... and dry!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

So placid. No surfers here. Heh...

29 Jun 2012 1:46pm

@Viewfinder: Ha, ha ... and not even any ducks this time. Sometimes after a rain they appear. ;D

Rick from Toronto, Canada

That's a lot of rain. Sure am glad you didn't get a hurricane and that Debby left a temporary pond instead. Whew!

29 Jun 2012 1:59pm

@Rick: If Debby had turned into a hurricane, it would have been a bad one, but then again, most of them are.

franz from Baden, Austria

a hopeful sign for sure !!
this scene looks as if taken in my father's hometown in northern lower austria, where they had a little pond in the middle of the village, for geese - and for washing clothes !!

29 Jun 2012 3:13pm

@franz: We had no geese or ducks show up this time, tho' we've had that in the past. Thanks, Franz.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Perfect landing field for lost ducks and pelicans! A nice lush landscape.

29 Jun 2012 3:25pm

@Steven: Thanks, Steven ... no feathered friends showed up this time. ;(

Jason Kravitz from Brussels, Belgium

a fine place for a pond - unless that place used to be a home or other ruined space
sorry to hear about all this damage and rain

29 Jun 2012 4:50pm

@Jason Kravitz: The 'place' is a drainage retention area for the unusual event of a torrential rain. Twice in ten years have we seen it flood, and this time, overflow. Tomorrow's image will show some damage, but thankfully not for us.

Don Levesque from Saint John, Canada

Are you going to be taxed for having a pond on your land? ;-))
That IS a lot of water. Glad to here you guys are ok.

29 Jun 2012 6:27pm

@Don Levesque: Thanks, Don, and you were right to say "you guys" ... we're glad to be back to normal (whatever that is). ;D

Don Levesque from Saint John, Canada

{blushing} I meant: Glad to hear you guy are ok
