I think the worst is over. Some hard rain, thunder, and lightning, and there are flash flood warnings for the county, but we are fine. It is still raining nice and easy.

Our house is ontop of a hill. You would think we would not get flooded. We got 4 inches of rain last weekend and our ground is so over saturated that our septic system is backed up.

All around me, but never saw a drop yesterday! Mom said she got about 2", about 60 miles from me. Charleston SC got dumped pretty bad. Flooded out several places yesterday!

I think Betty will get her rain, with Issac coming. Hope she gets the rain and nothing else. I mean from the hurricane!

I tried to keep it all here Monday :lol: We had rain that lasted about an hour at 1:00 and 4:30 in the afternoon, then started again about 11:00 and rain until sometime through the night.
I woke up Yesterday morning to the creek running high, and ponds in the hayfield. When I checked it had dropped 3.2" in my rain gauge.
Was gonna cut hay, but was too wet. Now with the threat from Issac for more starting Friday afternoon. Not enough time for hay to dry laying on wet ground. :roll:
We have had three days of rain in August, and I've dumped 11.25" from my gauge from those three days. :shock: the 4th 3.1" the 5th .75" in the morning then 4.2" that evening, the 27th 3.2"
Seems after the hot dry spell in the middle of growing season, the rain has come in abundance here, trying to make up for it. ;)

Ya'll get any to spare; please send it to Tillman County Oklahoma. Situation here in watershed for lakes where a lot of drinking water comes from is getting serious. All around us and south of the Red Rivers getting some rain and some areas a lot of rain. Here we can't beg borrow or steal a soaker with runoff

Jim eastern Oklahoma has great prospects; Tillman county is in the extreme south west; so with the high pressure cell hovering above us prospects are slim. I am really glad eastern Oklahoma has good prospects as part of that area is seriously hurting; especially in the piney woods country.
