Irregardless of the storm that was heading our way yesterday, since my daughter had a scheduled day off from work, she and I decided to get together as planned and went shopping, hitting the thrift markets and having lunch. It was raining and windy on the way over to her house (about 40 minutes away) but not that bad.
We had a great day together even though the rain continued all day long.
This morning when I left Otis and Riley out, I walked out into the garden and couldn't believe my eyes! The storm was worse than I thought. Our back yard was flooded.
This is the walk way out to the garage.
The butterfly bush was blown over and laying in a pool of water. Otis is here checking it out.
More standing water in the back of our yard.
All the mulch is washed away. Riley's toy is soaked.
What a mess. The good thing is the sun is shining brightly today and hopefully some of this water will dry up.
In the meantime, I've got lots of work to do!
