In the last 24 hours we got 4 inches / 10 cm rain. This was taken last Saturday. I should get out today to see how the same creek is looking . . . we actually had to pump out the back yard with a submersible pump and hose as the water was creeping over the patio. Terra Firma in our neck of the world has a lot of clay, and the result is poor drainage, made even poorer, in our case, by too many impervious walls. Overall, we are fine, but when a storm like the ones we are having hits, flooding and catastrophe follow.
