The first picture is what the pier looked like before the tornado went through one of the suburbs, last night, and the second picture is how it looked this morning, after the storm dumped more rain than anyone could have imagined, in a matter of minutes. My daughter took both of them.

    oh my gosh, that is so crazy

    • I was outside, came in to get something and when I turned around it was raining so hard I couldn’t see outside. I think one of the suburbs had trees down, but don’t know what the actual damage was like. We just got buckets of rain. In a couple of minutes my entire patio was flooded.

    Yiles, hope everyone is safe.

    • I don’t think anyone was hurt, but where it was bad, trees were down and things like that. We just got rain, which came down in sheets. Hard to believe it can rain that hard.

    This must have been so scary…. we had, a while ago, our 100yr old stone wall broken off it’s foundation and washed down the hill upon a luckily empty road. HUGE damage. Insurance paid nothing but sent us, 10 days later, a proposition for a new contract, including legal help to claim in a next case….
    Rain is amazing…. it REIGNS supremely.

    • No, not scary, just interesting. Sheets of rain, it was pretty cool. Only lasted a short time. Results of a tornado in the area. Water can be terrifying and scary, especially if dams break, then it’s deadly.

    • We had a LOT of rain, believe me. My yard is a jungle. Poison ivy is doing well, so I can’t touch anything and I can’t put anything dangerous on it because of Emmie and somehow Lilly of the Valley has moved in and that[s poisonous so I’m kind of freaking out.

        What about goats?
        I know it’s sounds crazy, but a friend of mine (tons of allergies) had the same problem.
        she tried everything to get rid of the Poison Ivy… no luck.
        Then she hired the goat people. They showed up at her place with a few goats. The goats ate everything in a day.
        Clean yard!
        As long as the Goats’ people are good to them, it sounds okay!
        They certainly are well fed!

      • That is a brilliant idea. I don’t know any goat people but it’s an idea. Thank you. Would be good i the fall, when the flowers are finished blooming, since I guess they would eat those as well. Love it.

      • Resa says:

        The goats eat it all!!!!
        She said the goats were adorable, and she was sad to see them go!

      • I don’t blame her. Can they eat poison ivy? I do think that’s a great idea. Now I want a goat. I bet Em wouldn’t mind.

      • Resa says:

        Absolutely goats eat Poison Ivy, poison Oak and other poison plants!! That’s the main problem she was having. They wolfed the Poison Ivy down like there was no tomorrow! Melanie said the tree is a Cape Myrtle.

      • Unreal. I have to check that out. Thanks again.
