    To much rain

    Huge storm yesterday. Over 8" of rain in a 6 hour time frame. Creek behind the house over flowed its banks. 2" of water in my basement that backed up through the floor drain. My vegetable patch is probably done now as it's saturated with chemicals washed out of the farm fields. 3rd time in 6 years. Could be worse, 4 of my neighbors basements filled up with water. Tornado touch down in a near by village. Don't know what damage that produced. I'm getting to old for this crap.

    One minute your young and fun the next your turning down the stereo so you can see better.

    Sorry to hear this Terry. The world's weather patterns are changing, Couple all this with the COVID19 and I would imagine that need a good sense of humour......Weather in the UK is not too bad. Cold for the time of year and of course, it's the UK so plenty of rain.

    Cheers
