Rain, Rain, Go Away! Come Again Another Day!

This morning we slept in.  We shouldn't have.  We woke up to full window wells in the basement windows and the back yard looks like this:

While the weather here has been cool and so far there isn't a lot of flooding from the 200% of normal snow pack in the mountains, I think the worst is still too come.  I didn't hear rain last night, and it was a gentle, steady rain, but oh, how I'd love the sunshine.  Good thing it is predicted for tomorrow.  Still, it'll come as a mixed blessing because when it comes the snow in the mountains will melt.  We live on a flat plain of what used to be the Old Lake Bonneville that once covered this area.  ...could it be starting again?  
I suppose griping is normal.  At least we haven't lost our house to a tornado, or a hurricane or some other fact of nature.   ...And most important for me is that we do have a house.  So, quit yer griping, Pattilou!

I'm sorry about the flooding, and hope things will dry out soon! I too tend to get discouraged when Nature causes problems like that. There are thousands of folks worse off & I have to remind myself to be thankful!
