Flood update

It's still raining, but no flooding where I live.  Some homes in the area have not been so fortunate.  Our local newspaper, Mesquite Local News is good about keeping us informed.  I'm basically staying home and looking out the window.  Here's my front door with rain coming off the roof.

You can see the leaves piled near the house from the winds that preceded the rain.  It's too wet to clean them up now.  We also have water standing in the yard.  We don't have many gutters here in the desert, since we get little rain.  We have had 2" of rain this week and it's still coming down.  Our annual rainfall is about 6".

We are safe and in no danger at this time.  Hopefully this rain will end within 24 hours.
