It’s still early in the year, so I suppose we’ll have to wait and see what happens. Yesterday we got a little rain (.14″), but today was really something. We got 1.83 inches of rain today according to our weather station. The rate of rain got up to 4.25″ — meaning that’s how much rain we would have gotten in one hour — fortunately it didn’t rain that hard very long. We also got some hail and a lot of wind.
First we saw the storm coming from the lake (north) and after it passed over us and the rain had slowed down, it did a u-turn and hit us again!
We’ll help our neighbor tomorrow with straightening out his 5th wheel as the wind moved it about a foot and knocked it off the jacks. Fortunately the tires were good.

After it stopped raining I took the camera outside and I had to wait for the water go down before I could drive around to take pictures (click on images for full size pics in a new browser window). I can only imagine how much water there was DURING the storm!
I hope nobody got hurt!
