    I think there's a water horse in the pond. I've seen what they can do - their butt works just like one of those mud motors.

    I have seen that first hand. There are signs posted all around our local hippo to 'stand behind the splatter line'.

    Thankfully not that bad, but we have no drainage. Our chicken lot is like a pig lot and the pathway back there is like walking in quicksand. Hopefully it will clear up soon. In the meantime, that mud motor looks like fun! :D
     
  6. We getting floods ? really all those places are flood plans and not causing much damage . KY. got the worst of it the bad storms that is . but let me say this by this time of the year all the flood control reservoirs have been brought up to summer level and can't hold much extra . May 4 2010 was the worst flooding we had seen in years and could have been avoided if the reservoirs had not been full . you think they would learn[​IMG]

    We've had a little dry between the wet, so everything isn't drowning too much yet, but I think even the ducks are ready for a few days in a row without rain.
