We received .95″ of rain on Monday night in a thunderstorm followed by an long steady drizzle. Tuesday night we received .8″ in a gully washer of a thunderstorm at 5pm. We ate dinner and watched the rain. We watched the new pond raise up 4.5 feet in a matter of a couple of hours. My little pond by the road was overflowing; I pulled weeds and cat tails from the overflow to let it drain. The lower pond filled up slowly overnight.
