Lots of Rain in Northern Nevada ~ June 8, 2009

Holy Moly…we’ve been getting lost of rain lately. I haven’t turned on our water since May 30th!

Last night about 7 pm on the way home we hit a wall of water…dry on one side and huge rain drops on the other. It’s a good thing we decided not to walk around the Sparks Marina after dinner. In a half hour our street was flooding…see the creek running down the street?

The white vertical streaks are rain…

This morning I found my Lemon Queen sunflowers pushed over…and my Brussels sprouts were pummeled too. 😦

We just turned off the tv and popped in a Jack Johnson cd and played a game of Scrabble.

    The Brussels sprouts don’t look too bad off… last year mine were pretty beat up after a wind storm, but they bounced back and ended up producing a ton of sprouts by fall.

    … which I ended up trashing because of mealy aphids. :/ Ah, well.

    I hope yours recover well and that all of your plants enjoy the rain while they have it!
