Flooding in Hutchinson

This is my mailbox. It used to be on solid ground. Water in some places is up to the middle of car doors.

I'm faring better than some of my neighbors to the east.

We live on a major street, with four lanes, but only one of them is navigable and that's not really a lane so much as it is straddling the middle of the road - even then cars are making big splashes.

And my flowers that were so beautiful this morning are trashed. We've had hail three more times since the initial one.

In case you can't tell, that was a beautiful lambs ear that's now a puddle of light green, beaten to pieces. The pink is what is left of my pinks. The yellow was once a daylily. The speck of purple was salvia. Poor flowers - it's only mid May and they've had frost, snow, hail and a flood. It's not shaping up to be a good year.

Oh... more hail just started. I should get away from windows I suppose.
