We had a flash flood this afternoon. It inundated our garage and washed out our driveway. It rained for all of 20 minutes, maximum, but it was a powerful storm.
We’ll have to regrade the driveway but we probably needed to do that anyway. And hey, we’d been saying we needed to finish unpacking all the boxes we still had in the garage from the move. We hadn’t anticipated having to unpack dozens of them at once, madly rushing to keep as many things dry as possible. But flooding is a good incentive.
The only true casualties were several books and a couple of irreplaceable scrapbooks from my college days. That’s sad. But it was my own fault that I’d left the boxes in the garage.
Anyway, the storm. Right now it sounds like we live next to a river. (We don’t.) The entire yard of a house up the road is under water. And our rhubarb has revealed that we also got hail. All the leaves have tiny holes.
