It's been a toad-strangler of a day, with very heavy rains interspersed with drier, drippy periods. We've been under a flash flood watch all day, with a few tornado warnings thrown in to keep things interesting.
DaddyBear lives a few hours drive north of here, and he's been enduring the same weather front that's been hitting us. He commented:
Not sure how much rain we’ve gotten in the past day or so, but I’m pretty sure I just saw an old man going door to door looking for two animals of each kind for some project he’s doing.
