We have had a lot of rain this past month. I rarely watch the news so I have no idea what the total rain fall has been. The only thing I do know is that in the four years we've lived here I have never seen so much water in our backyard and garden.
The tops of Sanaa's boots were nearly covered as she walked into the garden.
I did keep my eye on the water level during all the rain. It never got all the way up to where the wall of the house started but it came close. I also kept an eye out inside to make sure no water was seeping in anywhere. We dealt with water damage a few too many times in Texas and I really didn't want to have to deal with it here too.
