July 9, 2015 -- Glub glub glub

Two inches of rain today, one inch poured down in a half hour at 3:30 pm. Then the fog moved in after "sunset", and it rained some more. An interviewee on TV tonight said "This is as worse as it gets". She looked intelligent, but, duh.
The pond is running over, can't see it under the grass on the right. Good thing, because it's almost over the bank. It hasn't been this high in a couple of years.
The summer of 1966 that Allen was in basic and AIT training at Ft. Leonard Wood, it was very dry and hot. Cindy and I weighted a thermometer and dropped it to the bottom of the island pond. When we brought it up, at the surface it was reading over 90 degrees. We've hit 90 maybe once this summer. That will change when the sun shines again, this weekend.
