Over the last few days we’ve had some rain in Birmingham. You could call it a wet rain. A set-in rain. A frog-strangler, even. But thank goodness, today’s rain does not accompany high wind or tornadoes. We had another devastating round of those on Monday, killing ten of our fellow citizens. We mourn the loss and devastation.

But today’s rain was just rain. Rain, rain, and more rain. It’s still raining. And we expect more rain tonight. Rain on top of rain.

So here’s how things look around my neck o’ the woods:

You can usually walk under these archways.

If you look closely in the middle of this photo, you’ll see a trampoline behind a tree. The water is up to the mat of it. And it usually sits on dry ground, of course.

The club house of the Mountain Brook Country Club. And, no, it doesn’t sit on a river. That’s flooding!

Not only is the water up to the seat of this park bench, but there is a sidewalk under there as well. This is usually a nice, dry walking path.

One of my favorite Birmingham landmarks, the Jemison Mill. Water usually trickles through, but today it’s rushing.

Hope you are staying safe and dry where you are!
