One inch of rain per acre is 27,154 gallons and weighs about 113 tons
Yesterday evening our place was the epicenter of a small Low Pressure system… We got 6.5 inches of rain in less than two hours… over 400,000 gallons of water 734 Tons of water fell on to the place.
Fortunately Most of our buildings are elevated above grade so no problems there but the small barn has a aisle at grade that is or was matted as the stall mats washed out into the paddock.
And the poor goats…their habitat which its past life started as the young kids’ play fort/house flooded as it was built as a play thing without thought or concern about raising water.
I blame my insurance provider who a few months ago sent out an advisory about flood insurance saying most any place can endure a localized flood (which I bushed aside)
No problems with the house or property other than it appears goats do not swim No fences washed out but the pastures sure are cleaner than usual as anything that was not attached to the ground floated to the fences … fortunately I had picked up most of the manure in the morning as it was a nice morning
No real complaints other than the big horses wondering why they are still in their their stalls this morning. (we have one new one Lexie who had been only pasture kept for her first five years, she was the first one who Demanded to be gathered up to be put into her stall as the rain started).
And now I have to build up the self encouragement to go see what I have not seen
