The electricity did not come back on until 11:32 a.m. I later learned that it was a very heavy storm and that 5.49 inches of rain had fallen in the area. I had been busy in the yard all day...No, I did not pull weeds...I raked leaves and filled four 52 pound dog food bags with them, trash and rocks. I was so tired I did not hear anything or rather I heard it but it was like in the distance.
Why rake leaves and not pull weeds? In heavy rain the leaves float down to the main gate and get stuck there. Maybe I will tackle the weeds after it all dries out?
There was an early Spurs game on Sunday (Utah vs Spurs) so decided to pick us up something to eat. I did not get far as the entrance to the sub-division was barricaded due to the high water.
It used to be worst until they fixed it two years ago but I guess 5.49 inches of rain was a bit much for this mini dam. I parked the car and walked the bridge to take a few pictures. This is known as the "Duck Pond" and serves as the unofficial zoo for the area.
You will always find people with children coming to feed the ducks. This one guy was very boisterous but I had nothing to offer him.
I guess this person is lucky their truck did not get carried away by the current.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
