rain in the backyardednesday 6/7

rained all day, from before dawn. heavy rain for awhile. the covered-over culvert flooded in an arc, and along the back of our yard, nice bright orange swathes of mud. the middle of the nextor/guy yards is a sodden pit of deep ruts and ponded water, plastic clay forms rising out of the red. i went and saw how the water was running down the middle of the yard, that’s the natural streamlet, and so i marked with bricks, and then raked off the gravel on the left bank into the stream course, and built a soon-to-be-dirt patch where the water wasn’t running. it was very warm after it stopped raining around 3, 65 at least. there’s a trailing line of thunderstorms that i’m hoping contains tornadoes. cloudy and dark all day, using the indoor lights.
