Independence Holiday Flooding

This actually occurred on July 3rd, but our Independence Day celebrations were in full swing. The weather had been hot and dry all day, but late in the afternoon the sky clouded up and soon it began to rain. We got about 2″ of rain in an hour, and the local drainage system could not keep up. So, just like during the Spring of 2015, the streets and my yard partially flooded. Here are a few photos:

Fortunately, once the rain stopped the excess water quickly drained off. But it’s always a nervous time for us when this sort of thing occurs because you never know just how high the water is going to go.
