Last night I reposted two posts that Blogger mislaid-please read if you missed those-
And today- we are still cleaning up in the wake of the flooding in Ellensburg yesterday. Saturday night, our fair city received almost two inches of rain in just a few hours. It was more precipitation than the storm drains around town could handle, forcing the water to go elsewhere. Like our basement. We woke up yesterday morning to about three inches covering the basement floor. We spent the day pumping and shop vacuuming it out.
Photos taken around town. Water was over many of the roads which is unusual here because it doesn’t rain very often (or so much) in Ellensburg.
It will take a few more days to completely finish cleaning up, but I am not complaining. I know there are people in other parts of the US who have really had a tough time. My heart goes out to them.
On a brighter note, here are a few photos of my garden-which loves the rain! Everything is growing fast, and I know that in just a couple more weeks many plants will be blooming!
We got this wonderful sundial from Stuart’s grandfather’s estate. I love that it says “I Count Only Sunny Hours.”
Pretty good philosophy, isn’t it!
