Farming is the biggest gamble that I know about. Hope you have some good luck to go along with the other kind. Gardening is farming on a smaller scale.
Having been born in Beaumont, Texas and being raised on my father's description of bringing us home from the hospital in a flood, I have a minor feeling for what that much water can do in 2 hours.

Oh my goodness, Dana! I am so sorry to hear (and see) about your flooding.  I heard on the Weather Channel this afternoon that there was a tornado warning (or watch) in your area.  Do hope not too much damage was done.

      Well, we are no longer an inch behind in our rainfall.  We are now 2.75
inches ahead.  We got 3.75" of rain in less than two hours.  This just about
doubled our rainfall for the year!!  We got home to find everything
underwater.  Landscape timbers that had been laid under the carport were
floating in the driveway!  I have attached a couple of pictures to show you
what it was like.  We haven't been able to go out yet and find out if the
marble to golfball size hail that accompanied the storm knocked off our seed
pods.  Cross your fingers for us!!
