It has been another crazy day in Kentucky. Record rainfall for any August day in recorded history.
Our library's main branch was flooded along with several bookmobiles. Many cars are up to their roof tops with water in the west end near the river. There have been several rescues and we have the chance for more rain in a little bit. I tried to get a picture of the pea-nickle-sized hail we had but it was pouring too hard to get out.
We took a walk after the rain stopped to check out the park near us and along the way I found these mushrooms. I don't think I've seen mushrooms that look like little "cups" before. I loved seeing them filled with water. We could only get about half way through the trail before it was flooded too much to continue.
Five inches in an hour is a whole lot of rain!
