On Aug.11 I sprayed the backyard with Rundup, on Aug 18 I sprayed the areas that I missed. Since Aug.18th(Saturday) it has rained every day except one. These rains have been large down pours each time, I estimate we had over 6" of rain this week. I do know that this months rainfall is one of the largest in history. There is several areas of flooding, I live about 45 minutes southwest of Chicago. The weather report calls for more thunderstorms this afternoon.:nono:
I had hoped to get some black dirt today to start the grading process, this will be delayed until the beginning of next week at the earliest.

We had 5 inches from two storms one evening. The rivers are still over the banks here. The next predicted rain is Wednesday!:cry:

I was able to get into the yard yesterday and roto till and move some dirt around. I hope to get my first load of dirt today.
