Freak rainstorm in Boynton

There was a freaky rainstorm in Boynton last night that dumped 8-10 inches of rain. Lots of parts of Gateway were flooded, including the back entrance to my neighborhood. My lake was up several feet this morning and the high water mark was more than halfway up to my patio. Oh, and this freaky drain pipe thing appeared on the side. Did it float up out of the lake during the storm? Can Dottie's flooded car be saved? Since it followed us home can we keep the water? Enquiring minds want to know.

My Garage!

These are the "before" shots.

I know I shouldn't be so excited about a garage, but it is going to be so awesome to have it all fixed up and organized. Right now, all the stuff stored there is on one jerry-rigged table, 2 high wall shelves and all over the floor. I've lived here 6 months and never parked my car in the garage! I didn't even know I had a big bag of potting soil out there. I could have repotted that palm that's pushing it's way out of it's pot. In my defense, the former owners left a lot of this stuff and it's been kind of hot outside.....

I have to get the shelving in place so I can put Nina's limbo stuff out there. She says some day she'll go through it and sell some of it on eBay. Yeah, right. In the meantime, out of the house and into the garage with it!

Here's the deal, folks.

Never mind. I'm much mellower now.
