We are getting a leetle bit tired of gully-washers.
Yesterday: we got approximately 2 inches of rain in 20 minutes.
Out the back door: Ugh.
See that dark rectangle at the bottom left corner of the window? That’s the drain outside my backdoor. The water was backed up, and it was probably a good 6 inches deep back there.
Needless to say: water was coming in under my back door. Nothing of value got wet, nor was anything of value in danger of getting wet, but it was surely a mess.
Last night when I left, (knowing more gully washers were possible over night…) I stuffed towels up against the door on the inside, and sandbags on the outside. The towels were damp this morning, and I’m glad I had them there.
I like rain, but this kind of stuff is ridiculous.
