Re: Re: MORE STORMS!


what's a moon tortoise?  I sure miss my turtles but with my wild dogs (especially the cockers)...

ditches. In town, it just floods. But it happens so rarely, that it
wouldn't justify the expense to build them. Be like buying a snowplow in
Texas - what the heck for??

We had to have gotten half a foot of rain in about three hours which
never happens. My gauge overflows at 5 1/2". When I went out about 10pm
to rescue my moon tortoise and lock the back gate (about an hour and a
half into the storm), I had to hold on to things to keep from being
blown over by the wind and enormous drops of rain (and I ain't light)
and the water was over my ankles out back. It felt like being pelted by
golf ball size water balloons, thousands of them. I was quite the lovely
drowned rat when I got back in the house. Sugar of course looked at me
like I was totally bonkers.
