Isaac Brings Rain

Our neighbor's pond - full to overflowing. Photo taken through rain spattered window.

Today all eyes are on tropical storm Isaac - well at least all eyes that live in states that border the Gulf of Mexico.  Fortunately, for us who reside along the Gulf in Southwest Florida, Isaac decided to veer farther westward.  We've been having bands of rain and wind but, for the most part, it has been a fairly well behaved tropical storm.  Hope it will behave itself when it reaches land - wherever that ends up to be. 


Photo above - Raining again.
Photos below -  Pond next door is starting to back up into our neighbor's front yard.

This raining season has been wet and our ground was well saturated before Isaac swung by.  Hopefully we'll not get the predicted amount of rainfall since the storm shifted its direction farther to the west . . . hopefully ! :)

  1. Wow! That's a full pond! I wish we'd have some rain here in So Cal - we've been so hot for the last couple weeks and the forecast for this week is high 90's and low 100's - NOT my idea of fun!!

    Glad you didn't get hit too hard though, a bad storm can be a very scary thing.

  4. I've never witnessed nature's wrath of such a big scale, earthquakes excluded, though not that disastrous. I wonder what it is to wait for where it goes. Hope you're safe!

  5. I hope you're still faring well. It's too bad the states going through severe drought can't get some of that rain.

  8. I'm so glad you're okay. That must be frightening.

    It makes me laugh that we grumble about a little bit of rain over here in England!! I shall never grumble again! ;-)
