The flagstone pathway running through the back of our yard becomes a small stream when it rains. I didn't catch this during that part of the storm, but it left little ripples over the stones. You can barely see them.
And, it will take a while for things to drain here, but again...I'm ok with this.
Yes, things will be muddy for a while, but I can deal with mud.
"If you pray for rain, be prepared to deal with some mud" according my little Words to live by for Gardeners by Mary Engelbreit.
