The Report for after the Storm!

Yes the JTI storm reporter did her job and went out to check around how bad the storm was. I will let you know this much if we get another storm before the water has a chance to go down the Root River is going to go over and also some of the side roads out in the country. I just could not believe how much rain did come down. Then on the news they say we only got 2 1/2 inches of rain not true it was a lot more than that. I can tell by the river.

On the west side of interstate 94 got it worse then we did. Drew and I went out that way to do some birding yesterday when he got off of work. You would not believe it out there we seen small branches on the road and you could tell in spots that the water did go over the roads. I do have a picture of a farm out there too.

Here are some pictures I did take yesterday-

                                       This is by the Root River on 5 Mile Rd in Caledonia Wi.

                                       This is by the Root River on 5 Mile Rd in Caledonia Wi.

                           This is by the Great Blue Heron nests on Nicholson Rd in Caledonia Wi.

                      This is on the West side of Interstate 94 on 2 Mile Rd. this is the farm field.

I hope that everyone enjoys the pictures and then you know how much rain we did get.

Great pics, THB. It was a hell of a storm system. When the tornado siren sounded, I didn't know if I should go to the basement or not.

I slept thru most of the rain and storms, but one morning at work, we watched it just come down in sheets. We have very happy grass to show for it tho
