New England is getting hit again. A little over a week ago we had a huge rain storm that gave us 10" of rain. I've lived here for almost 30 years and I'd never seen rain like that. Six inches isn't that uncommon, but 10" is pretty unheard of. Friends that had never had water in their basement before were getting wet. Winchester schools were closed for 3 days because the center of town goes underwater when we get 6" of rain, much less 10.
Yesterday and today, we got another 6" inches. It doesn't sound like all that much for us, but the reality is that the ground is saturated. The water tables are high already. There is no place for the water to go. It is at times like this I'm happy to be living on a hill. The garden looks very soggy, but it drains. I just hope my peas haven't rotten out yet. It all dries out on Thursday and I'll get a chance to check on it then.
I hope all the rest of you New Englanders are doing OK with the rain. I'm especially worried about Thomas and his garden. I just hope it all stops soon.
