The remnant of Harvey is passing over us now and it isn't raining much now. We got about 4 1/2 inches here on the farm this afternoon, all in a short period. Other places nearby have already received over 8". We should be getting more rain tonight as the back side of the storm passes thru. My pond has been low all summer, as it never filled up this spring and all the big rains so far this year missed me. As of this morning, my pond was about 6 feet low. This pic shows what just 4 inches of rain can do, when it comes down hard. The pond is now full & overflowing down the spillway. Can't even get my mind around getting 20+ inches in a day.
A nice ole rat snake was in one of my horse's stall when I fed this evening. Guess it was looking for a safe place to stay dry. It didn't appreciate me shooing it outside & was snapping at me the whole time.

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
My last backpacking trip to isle royale. It's hard to pick a favorite picture from the wolf's eye.
