3.5" of Rain!

Last night, we received more than 3 inches of rain in just a few hours! In some places, it was as much as 3.5 inches. Streets were flooded, traffic was bad, and it was muddy. The pond behind our house (which is seasonal and was dry) filled halfway up in just two hours! We welcome the rain, but this was insane! Read more about it in the Gainesville Sun this morning.

THAT was a wonderful rain. I was buying wood in Lowes during a big part of it. I spent a half hour outside the store under the awning wrapping my precious trim and moulding in plastic before venturing home through the rain.

We were stuck out in it, too. The kids had swim lessons on campus. By the time, we got to the lessons, they were wetter than the kids in the pool!
