good morning ,this is a true story that happened to me about 30 years ago. I was at a pond in the middle of a field, it had not rained in about 2 months. and every thing was drying up, including the pond, it was not 4 feet deep anywhere in the pond. I had just caught about a 5* bass, just then it began to rain, a real slow misty rain. from the water in the pond to the top of the bank where I was standing was about 3 feet.just as I put the fish in the cooler on the back of my truck, the bottom fell out, no kidding this is a true story. in rained so hard I had to jump in the truck to take a breath.I jumped out to get my rods up. it was the same thing. could not take a breath for the rain was falling so hard and fast. it was pushing the air away from me. and I thought, I am going to drown in a rain storm if I don't stay in this truck. in about 45 minutes the rain let up to a drizzle.I could not believe what I saw. the rain had over filled the pond and the field looked like a giant lake. this was about 10 in the morning. I finally got out of there about 8 that night.true story, it rained so hard I could not see the hood emblem on the truck with the wipers going full speed.
