Ditto 350 miles south down the pike (I-55).  I thought we had been 
lucky all day yesterday, covered by some sort of giant umbrella  as 
we just had sprinkles.  Patrons came in all day looking like they had 
just been rescued from drowning and were  talking about rainfall up 
and down the road.  Then, last night.  We were in the purple on the 
radar - that dreaded color that indicates the heaviest rainfall.  It 
rained all night long, and my five inch rain gauge overflowed.  No 
hail or tornadoes were reported around here, thank goodness.

I dreaded going out and surveying the damage to the iris.  
Surprisingly, very few had toppled.  I still have several TBs 
SANTAFAIR, BEL ESPRIT and another one or two.

The sweet little cross of versicolor x pseudacorus (versipseu?) from 
Chuck Chapman is blooming its head off.  It really makes an 
outstanding  clump here.
