Closer to home, the sun finally came out after a week of rain. Many places around the Chattanooga area had some minor flooding. The waterfront and the Tennessee Riverwalk were off limits due to the high water. Below are some pictures taken on Thurs, July 11.

Some of the small farms in nearby Jasper were not so lucky. Their cornfields were totally inundated. It's sad to see all their hard work gone down the drain. The garden in our friends' home in Jasper fared pretty well. A few days ago, we picked some zucchinis, yellow squashes, jalapeno peppers, radishes and an eggplant. The Japanese beetles paid a visit to the brussel sprouts (sorry Julie!). Before we can spray them, rain came again. Not sure what they'll look like this morning...
