Our personal lake property has returned. Over 5" since yesterday afternoon --- our gauge only goes that far. Fitting to call it a loch with "Nessie" standing in front of the tree house (you can see her through the right branches of the crepe myrtle). That rock has long been in our family, since being found on Bill's great-grandmother's farm in Kansas nearly 100 years ago.
I took these photos yesterday afternoon; by nightfall, the water covered the farm road seen in the distance. Driving to church this morning, we see that nearly everyone has lake-front property this morning.
