flash flooding!

so late last week we had some rain.
a lot of rain.
like 4-5 inches in under 2 hours.
some people (many people) had flooded basements due to sewer back ups.
our street & yard were flooded.

meghan & her friend nikki were doing some puddle jumping. and sliding in the backyard.
it was ankle deep on the side of our house.
a little deeper in the backyard.

it may be frustrating and sad to have a flood,
but puddle jumping is good for the soul!
