Here are some pics from the rain we had a few days ago. It was HORRIBLE and really rained from 5pm on Monday until Tuesday morning about 5am-NON STOP!
Since we have a wonderful lovely neighbor that had bought the lot next door(years before we moved in) assuming he’d one day have enough money to build his “dream home” and obviously doesn’t have the money…he’s letting it all grow over and there are weeds galore. This is what happens as the grass grows high..and the water can’t get through fast enough! Gotta love “those” neighbors!! LOL!
I have never seen the water this high! It was CRAZY!
More pics..i think it’s time to give the guy a call and tell him to get with it or i’m REALLY going to report him to the city for not mowing his grass. Did i also mention that he’s left a stagnant pool of YUCK right beside us..luckily he’s nice enough to fill the BROWN pool with fish to keep the TX size mosquitos away…not really sure it works..but we’ll pretend like it does. :)
The water was ALMOST OVER THE ENITRE ROAD!
AND Since Hannah’s school suddenly decided to close and didn’t tell us…we brought everyone home through the flood and Hannah painted this lovely apple tree. I think she’s going to be an ARTIST! She’s sooo good at drawing!
My sweet big girl!
You can’t see too well..but these are my poor feet after being attacked by fire ants while going down the row with one of my sweet older neighbors(Charlie-who reminds me soo much of my grandpa)..to unclog the drains and get the water moving. Those little
bastards suckers bit me about 10 or 12 times. When it first happened i felt a sting..but they didn’t itch until the middle of the night..NOW, they are still itching horribly..to the point that i scratch and they bleed!
This is what happens when the girls are over-tired and fighting their naps..they fall asleep hanging off of the couch! LOL! HILARIOUS! I
I had to shove her back on the couch..
Sam slept on daddys chair..sooo peaceful!
