Another Soggy Sunday

Man, it has been a wet June! We had an all-day soaking rain yesterday, around 2 inches, which brought our rain surplus to 6 and some inches. Considering we started the month with a 2-inch rain deficit, that's some serious rain for this area! The upside to that is that it's been cooler and I haven't had to turn on the air conditioners as much, and I get to wake up to the smell of fresh air flowing in my open windows. To me, that's heaven.

I had today off, just a single, so I walked through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park on the way to the grocery store, and I got some scenes of the soggy mood of the day. Enjoy!
