Just last week so much rain came down so fast, it flooded many streets in the Twin Cities (MN) and took out the electricity from a lot of homes. Quite a few trees came down too. We didn't have that damage here in Wisconsin, but we did watch the rain that day come in horizontally.
I believe it has rained every single day for two weeks, and four of those rainfalls have been the flash flooding type. This has made it very difficult for us to get all of our perennials planted! Will be too wet tonight to do any.
The only good thing I can say is that it's a lot better than the drought that was predicted for our area this year! I remember sweating bullets pulling heavy hoses around trying to keep all our new trees and plants watered when we first moved in about seven years ago.
