water,water everywhere....

It seems long ago since we lived on that farm in the middle of this picture.  I don't recall ever seeing water like this!  There was a down-pour ( I think that is putting it mildly) the other night.  The JD Salesman took a  flight over the countryside yesterday and with his phone, took a few pictures.     
 South of Youngstown is a reservoir, a recreational area, which is over flowing its banks.  I know of one family who was evacuated for fear the dam would not hold.

The JD Salesman was "gifted" with a relic John Deere bicycle in the back of his pickup sometime last winter. (yes, it does say John Deere in obscure printing!).  It sat in our shop, waiting for someone to rescue it, make something useful.  This is what has transpired!  Now the question is will the plants survive the wind and will I remember to water !  Ask me later........
