Well I guess the drought of last summer is officially over. In the past 24 hours I got 5 inches, with another 3-5 inches forcast by noon tomorrow. I live 25 miles northwest of Rend, so Rend is full for sure. When I crossed the Big Muddy on Rt. 15 comming home from work, the water was a foot from comming over the highway. Being a boat mechanic and fisherman, the water is welcome, well, maybe not this much at one time, but its better than nothing. I don't know what this will do for catfishing Saturday after the BOC meeting at Ryan's resturant, I assume it won't be to big a deterent.

Well... now I am officially mad at Mother Nature. She decided to flood our finished basement... so now it is shop vac and carpet cleaner sucking time. Gallon after gallon of the lovely water being sucked out of the carpet. And what sucks is it is already starting to smell moldy and mildew. Gross!

As long as I know that the lakes and rivers are filling up to promise me less chance of ripping up another prop on the boat, then I know this little inconvenience was well worth it.

Oh no... it was baited. Aaron forgot to take the shad off from last year. Was still on the hook... man... i thought it was the mold and mildew smell of wet carpet. Apparently shad isn't meant to be kept on the hook for 5 months.

Brian just don't catch a new PB in the basement.:wink: That would be scary. I have a drop down living room that used to flood with this kind of weather. It is a chore to keep up with that water coming in. I finally cut a hole through the concrete, dug a hole and buried a plastic bucket with holes drilled in it to allow the water a place to come in. I dropped a sump pump in it and ran the hose to a drain I have in the utility room. I wish I had done it years before. Just a thought for the future:wink: See ya Saturday

we had all our heavy music equipment in the basement and it started flooding out while i was at work. the only person who was there to move all the thousands of dollars and hundreds of pounds of equipment from being destroyed was a 100 pound girl. props to her for getting all upstairs before it got wet!

Dang Shane, that was a disaster in waiting :crazy: I foresee a little "spoiling" for a certain gal who saved a bit more than the day! Kudos to her!
