It started pouring rain here around 9 pm. We're under a tornado watch and a flood warning. Lightning and thunder are playing across the sky. Don't forget... Anyone who wants to come and take some of this water from the sky, you can pump it straight out of the culvert at the end of my yard. Is anyone interested in coming and getting some of it? I'm hoping it will reach @myklj999 tomorrow and @DocAndersen in two days.

Wow, this picture of your raindrops is very beautiful, friend. It looks like it's falling snowflakes. Hopefully your place will not be flooded or stormy. Stay safe and stay healthy.

You've seen falling snow? I thought your country is always hot. The culvert at the end of my yard is already 3/4 full... I hope it doesn't overflow on the highway that the culvert goes under.

@DaddyEvil In my country there is no snow. But when I was little, I took school holidays and visited my grandmother's village. In my grandmother's village the air is very cold because it is located in a hilly area. At that time it was raining very hard, and I happened to be in the fields with my grandmother. When it rained heavily, I felt someone throw pebbles on my head. Uh, it's not pebbles, it's raining small hailstones. So rain contains small hail like pebbles. This is called hail.

@maratai Yes, rain can contain hail in it if the air is cold enough that the hail doesn't melt before it reaches the ground. Let me look in my photos. I think I have one that shows it snowing in my back yard. I'm sorry. Apparently I deleted that photo.

Thank you. It stopped raining for a while but it started back up again. At least the radar doesn't say anything about tornadoes now. Just more storms. I hope it stays nice for you.

I have a cousin in Norman, OK. She said they had lost power and had a storm and big hail, they had to go to their storm cellar. They lost a house a few years back in a tornado there, so when they built another home, they added a storm cellar and stocked it in case they have to stay in it. Hope you are doing OK.

We are about four hours East of your cousin. Tornadoes always circle around our city, usually to the North side of the city. We're on a high spot here. We're doing fine, thank you.

The culvert at the end of the yard is almost full. If it makes it to the top, then the roads around us will be flooded. Our house is on a hill so we'll be okay. The tornado warnings expired at 7 am. We're back under flash flood warnings now, though.

Did you know that I did not know America had rainy season? I thought they got snow, so when it melts, they had their water requirements. I thought that only some states have rains. JJ enlightened me.

@DaddyEvil Got pretty nasty here a little bit ago, lost 2 major tree limbs, emergency vehicles heading south of town, smaller debris all over the yard. I was waiting for the sirens to kick on but they didn't. Wind was hitting hard enough I was sure I'd lose a full tree.

The storm hit a lull but another wave of storms is heading at us now. When I went to the culvert around midnight it was 3/4 full then. The weather forecasters changed the flood warning to flood watch for my area. Edit to add: Weather radar map from my phone.

@Fleura My phone screen isn't big enough to show what went through earlier. That storm was just as big as the one coming up. I'm hoping they don't spot any tornadoes with this second storm, either. If you can figure out how to pass a hose through our laptop screens, I'd take my end down and drop it into the culvert for you.

Open the door and drag a hose through. I'll hook another hose to it and drop my end into the culvert. Then you can start siphoning all the water you want out of it.

We got hit with two storms yesterday. The second one was the stronger one, too. Strong winds tore through here, ripping some good sized limbs off trees in our back yard. We've got most of it cleaned up but still have some work to do before we can mow back there again.

@xander6464 Thank goodness we DON'T get all the fun things here. I would have moved a long time ago if we did. (The back yard is absolutely covered in black walnuts. We'll need to get those picked up before too long, too... or we'll have trees sprouting everywhere this coming Spring. If I knew anyone with a pickup, I'd ask them to come over and split the money selling the walnuts would bring in.)

The forecast here is calling for three or, possibly, four more days of rain. We don't need any more and I don't want any more. We had limbs down all over our back yard. We've gotten most of those cleaned up but the strong winds also knocked down black walnuts all over our yard, too. We'll have to get those cleaned up before we can mow again. I hope there's no damage from the rains there.

@RubyHawk It's flooded here three times this summer. Never enough to do more than make people aware that things could be a lot worse. (During one intense storm Pretty and I were going to the doctor's office but had to turn around and find a different way to get there because water was fountaining up through the blacktop of the street. I wasn't willing to have it shooting directly up into my car's underbody/engine.) *sigh* More cleanup. My favorite job. Photo of a yard flooded not far from my house. Photo is mine.
