More Rain
 
I stood looking at the sky outside at the dark clouds rolling in. I called my dad and asked, “You guys ok? Looks like we got more rain coming in.”
I could hear the smile in his voice when he answered, “Hey kiddo we’re good. We just replaced the sump pump but it’s working like it should.”

I asked him, “Do you still need me?”
His response made me grin. 'Let's just wait and see'
More rain, means more sticky muck,
More rain, when even the tractors already stuck.
More rain, where does all this water come from?
I really don’t think we need, more rain.

Our area currently isn’t in danger, but just a few miles north, they hauled out tons of dirt and silt to repair the county fairgrounds.
