Last night just before dark the sun and a double rainbow appeared. The sun is something that just has not been visible for the past few days. So today I went into the back yard to start some clean up and I still saw a foot of water. It stinks, and is now full of tadpoles. What makes me mad is all of my neighbors yards are nice and dry. Finding out I have the low yard . Great all the water drains into mine. So with all of this rain, the inevitable is coming. Mosquito's should be hatching in the next few days and with all of this standing water we are going to be inundated with them. I decided to rent a pump and 150ft hose for $50 and pump all of this water out to the drain on the street. And I think I have my first casualty from the storm. My little Persian lime tree was almost completely submerged under the water for 4 days now. It still has some green sections but mostly looks Horrible.
