    Now dont get me wrong, I like rain. I wanted rain for my new transplants in the garden. But this is ridiculous! We got so much rain last night, my garden is under water! I have spouted beans floating, tomatoes are up to their necks! Just the tops of the hills of melons and squash are sticking up like little islands.

    My ducks nest box got wet from the driving rains and she abandonned her clutch, (only a few were developing, and they're now in the bator...)

    And to top it all off, the rain, and my own negligence, brought tragedy... https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=342674&p=3

    We had just under 3 1/2" yesterday. On my way to work this morning, I stopped the truck to see if I really had seen a fish in the driveway (It crosses a creek.). Yup! It was a 9-10" bass.
