Thanks
I took quite a few dream catchers after the rain.
That being what I thought best represented what we are in search of.

Whoa.... great photo hava. Probably one of the best I've seen posted!!!

We've had a lot of rain lately.... some high winds too. The last high winds that blew through ripped off 2 roof vents on my green house. I don't know why I think this photo is so funny but I do. I went into the greenhouse and when I come in I always slip into these goofy looking blue clogs so I'm not tracking in who knows what. I pull them out then slip them on. I went to do that and got a surprise. There was water in them. About a half inch. The rain must have come in just right to fill up the clogs. Weird photo. The next photo is from the rain we got today. I think we're saturated. There's standing water everywhere and I'm on sump pump watch right now since there's another storm system coming our way. This next photo I got a kick out of because there's reflections in the water below the tree. These aren't submissions to the contest.... I was just screwing around with my camera.

WOW!
You ARE saturated. Thank goodness your veggies are in raised beds or they would have more than likely drowned by now.
