Pond?

In front of our house? That's what it looks like, right? Actually, it's just water from a heavy rain yesterday afternoon. It rained so much that it looked like we had a small pond by the front. We also had a small puddle on our back porch so the little one had a few minutes of fun. What's with puddles and little kids anyway? She can't seem to resist the urge to stomp on it whenever she sees a rain puddle...

The rain lasted less than an hour but it dumped 6 inches of rain according to the weather people on TV. The people around here got a wee bit excited and started taking pictures...yep, including us. LOL....

It's actually raining while I'm typing and it looks like we're going to have a repeat of yesterday which is not good. Yes, the grass needs watered but it almost drowned yesterday. Our neighbor's backyard still looks muddy from where I'm standing so it can only get worse if it rains as hard as it did yesterday. Maybe we should start singing..."rain, rain, go away...come again another day".

Happy Monday!

oh...whenever i see pouring outside, it reminds me always of my childhood days, me, my siblings and cousins used to play on a muddy, flooding area we have in our compound. all the memories really flashed back... so i do understand what's your girl up to lately whenever she sees heavy rains...

too much rain isn't good too...because it'll end up flooding and once it's done there will be stagnant water in your place... good thing mosquitoes that carries viruses don't survive in this continent...

that's how it has been here in NY since yesterday. although, in our area we're not getting as much. hanggang bukas pa daw ang ulan.

my mind has been preoccupied the past week dahil my Mom and the rest of the staff in her house was hospitalized for food poisoning. pare-pareho sila ng kinain, crabs daw. problem is, my Mom is the only sickly person kaya siya ang tinamaan ng todo. now, her nephrologist bumped up her dialysis from 2x/week to 3x.

grabe at nakakabahala but wala kang magawa.

enjoy the downpour! since wala tayong choice, i-enjoy na lang di ba?
