    Between midnight and 2:30am last night we had over 5" of rain. Needles to say, My backyard and chicken pen is under water. There is about 6" of water standing in the pen. The chickens are NOT happy. The duck are enjoying their big pond. To make matters worst we are in the process of have some remodeling done on the house. Thank heavens they finished the new roof yesterday morning. Here's some pictures I took this morning. Keep in mind that the water has gone down some.

    The chickens standing on the bottom step of the coop. You can see how deep it is by the concrete block they are standing on.
