Hello everyone on mylot I thought I'd tell you all we just went through some hard BAD weather the other day WOW we had thunder rolling like bombs going off. The rain was like a water fall with no end to it the wind blew as if it was going to blow us away I hate weather like that, & we had it for 2 days. We didn't get no tornadoes here THANK GOD but other places around us did & made a MESS it tore house's up flooded roads dropped trees. No one was hurt, cars got trapped in the floods our place got flooded & when we get rain like what WE DID everything is just PURE MUD. I don't mean just wet dirt, I mean like DOG POO mud! slippery, nasty, slick, hard to walk in MUD & takes DAYS to dry out, that sucks. So we just got done with redoing the outside wall on the cabin where it was getting soaked & now have a ditch to keep the water drained. BUT we need to figure out HOW to put a slant wall OVER that where the water just runs away from the building so that's gonna take work to do. Something like this (vision) > slanted wall /I<cabin wall we don't need but @ MOST 2 ft high to do this But to get it started is the problem of what we need. Here's the kind of weather we got the other day & this was just the START of what we ended up with by the time it was done 24 hrs later. Guess what folks? we're in for MORE tomorrow I hope not as bad but who knows right? & there's no way we can do anything with what we need to do till we get the stuff to do it with that SUCKS.
It was the 3rd day into camping for a week when this storm hit. Crazy hail, severe gusting winds, sideways rain....flash flooding. It was crazy! Weren't sure...

I'm glad it stopped raining. I've been in that kind of rain and walked in that kind of mud. Not fun. Makes me wish for snow all the more. I hope you won't get more rain like you had.

@sugartoes That's not good. We started with rain this morning. I think it stopped only temporarily.

At least you were safe, and hope you still are and will be. Here rain doesn't last for more than a few hours (or minutes), yesterday we had some terrible thunderstorm, but again, lasted for a few hours. So we're now back to 95/100°F. Yay.

@sabtraversa sorry to hear that you can come live here if you want, I bet you'll be glad to have the weather you get after being in some of the stuff we get in the states.

@sugartoes I know, at least we don't get tornadoes. But the world is changing, so we're experiencing weathers we didn't have before. Maybe in the future it won't make any difference where we live.

@sugartoes The grass is already up to my butt, so I don't need any more rain. I would be happy if the heat killed the grass.
