too much rain

Every time we get a lot of rain, one corner of the corn field behind us floods. Some mornings before dawn, I can here deer splashing around. Today, I saw a duck swimming in the water. If then rain keeps up much longer, I'll be able to fish out the door of the MH.

I just seeded my lawn- I'm afraid that it's going to drown again (last year, we had 2/3 of our $1,400 of sod curl up and die due to too much rain rotting it out).

Send your excess rain to DFW - we have an ongoing drought that's getting worse each day.

I told the wife about an hour ago that I'm considering getting my shop vac out and sucking up the excess from the yard. If I do, I'll package it up and send it your way.
