Four More Inches

More rain.  Last night the rain came down in sheets again, with rain and thunderstorms earlier in the day as well.  The ditches out in front of our house were filled with water, water running over the road, water running down the driveway, water in our basement.  Not a lot, but still a source of misery.  But where are four inches of rain supposed to go, on top of the rain that's already fallen (including the four inches we got overnight a few weeks ago)?  Most of it heads down the ditch, down the street, into the storm drains, into the streams and lakes and rivers.  But when those waterways are too crowded, too much of it lingers, invading places we count on to stay dry.  Things will dry out, but it won't be too soon.  

More rain falling now, more rain expected today.
