8-15-06 Overnight Storm

Here is a picture of my backyard from this morning. This is an oak tree branch that didn't make it through the storm. Notice the debris on the ground where water pooled. It does this sometimes during heavy rain. In my backyard water can get up to 3 feet deep. Fortunately I live on a slope and it would be virtually impossible to get water as high as the foundation on the house.
Anyway, I logged 1/2" of rain so I'm happy. Now I won't have to water until tomorrow!
