Epic Rainstorm 2010:)

So we have had mucho rain this whole week. In fact we have had more rain in the past few days then all of 2009 and this is one of the worst storms to hit AZ in recorded history. I think it has been kind of fun, granted I live where it is not snowing and I'm not shoveling all the time. Thank heavens for that! I thought I would just document with some pictures.

Last night after the tornado watch and it was still pouring. That is the beginnings of Lake Bucko.
This afternoon after a break in the storm. Lake Bucko. Are you ready for some water skiing?

The park down from our house. We will call it Lake Castlegate.
Same park
Park again
The back of the park. That is how far back the water went.
This is when it started to pour again. Thank heavens Matt built Zippy a new habitat or the poor little guy probably would've drowned. (That's it in the corner)

Sam singing in the rain.
As I type this the rain is finally stopping. I know a lot of people are tired of it but I am kind of enjoying it. Probably because we have had no flooding, down trees, or snow to contend with. I'm just grateful for the moisture we are finally getting.

Isn't it crazy! Jada was just amazed by all the "swimming pools" as we drove up and down the streets over here. I LOVE it though!

I love it too! Our family kept calling us because they were worried the Salt River was going to flood us! Silly family! I should have been worrying about Lake Bucko flooding you guys!!
