A week of rain after a drought can flood floors ~ Bronxville NY 10708

For weeks, we have been relatively rain free and New York has actually been in drought through early September.  Our horse, Krys, has been out of grass for weeks at the barn where she lives upstate...it's like a dust bowl this summer.

But, now forecasters tells us we'll have a rainy week and weekend.

So, check your basement as the rain moves in and hangs over us, off and on all week and through the weekend.  Most days will have a shower or two, but thunderstorms are predicted and that means a lot of water in a short period of time in Westchester County.  We need the rain and may get up to 1" this week.

 

This Thursday looks dry and I'm heading up to ride Krys, but rain returns Friday and may last through Sunday.  Keep those sump pumps going and check your drains as the leaves start to turn and fall, so you do not have a flooded basement.  

 

Let it rain! ~

Hoping that it pours - we need the rain and I want it to rain hard so that my son has a sunny Sunday on October 11 for his wedding!

Joanna...so nice to see you, gorgeous and thanks for the comment.  I'll do a sun dance for your son's wedding and congrats.  Right now, our horse needs grass and nutrients to carry her through winter.  Thanks again!

Yes, some rain would be good.  It seems like some of the trees are not doing their full autumn dance and instead are just drying up and turning brown.  But, too much rain at once can create other problems.

We are in severe drought here even though we were flooding in the Spring.  McCurtain County where we are, is currently the driest county in the State of Oklahoma and we are the one with the highest annual average rainfall.. how ironic is that!!  You are right on to be posting about checking those basements!  We do not have basements here since our frost line is much shallower.
