It keeps coming

If anyone out there is keeping track we have had around 10-12 inches of rain in the past 48 hours.

Tropical storm Debby has gone towards us vs away from us like they predicted and we are now included in the watch area.

We have been under Tornado watches since early yesterday with multiple tornadoes starting as water spouts and moving on the coasts and some in land towards us here in Tampa and Plant City.

The county has started issuing sandbags due to flooding. Many homes are without power and some building have been crushed in the storms.

The rain and storms are predicted to continue at least through Wednesday.

We are hunkered down here at Sunny Spot Gardens and keeping a watchful eye on the weather!

Pictures taken by local news crews in the past 24 hours round here:


  1. I hope she blows over without leaving you guys with any damage.

  2. I'm curious how your new swales worked during the recent deluge?

  3. Jim, they worked amazingly!!! We didnt flood to bad here but what we did my yard was just about empty of water. between the gardens and swales drinking it all up! :)I am THRILLED!
