That's not a bush or a small tree - that is a limb that was so waterlogged
from our summer rains that it snapped like a toothpick around 9 a.m. thursday morning. Note how there is very little water......
This photo was shot this morning about 11 a.m. from Hunter's game room window upstairs...that's the same limb but now its surrounded by standing water.
The irrigation ditch across the street.....Friday 11 a.m.
And although the tourist town that lies just south of us was technically in the eye of the storm for most of thursday, we were just outside of it and were hit by the winds and rains of a stalled tropical storm the entire day.
But even in the midst of the storm....the Martins fly above the fields catching the mosquitos that surround us.....and one of them, taking a break from the heavy winds, landed just outside our mudroom window. David shot this photograph about 6 p.m. on Thursday evening...
