Nice Rain Storm

This first picture is what I call Tom Creek. The drainage area that goes into this is over half an acre of mostly grass and trees.

The small drainage ditch that emerges from underneath the patio is about half full tonight. Earlier today, dad said it was up to the top!

It's good to see the rain gutters getting a work out again.

This water flows about 6 feet from dad's front door.

The warm storm is racking up some numbers on the old rain gage.

We got over 2 inches of rain here just south of Trinidad. From 7 am today we measured about 2.18 inches at 7 pm this evening.

More rain to come before it's all over.
