Rain in February

Well, this is different.  This morning started out with snow, then it started to rain.  By 6p.m. my rain gauge had three quarters of an inch of water in it and most of the snow was either melted, or turned to ice.

The gauge also had ice hanging from it.

We have water running across the yard, something that is not typical of a Minnesota February.

There are puddles all over, as water seeks to find a place to soak in.

Even the goldfish pond is running over.

They are calling for possible thunderstorms tonight and more rain.  It may start to snow tomorrow, or it may just continue to rain.  We sure are lucky this is not snow.  Now we get the call that school will start 2 hours late.  What a winter for southwestern Minnesota.
