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. 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.
