We are due more rain. So far for the month of May we have had over 13 inches. But it really hasn't drowned our garden too bad. It has stressed our beans is about all. But the rain we are supposed to get for the next 2 days are supposed to cause flooding.
We shop in Hot Springs, Arkansas at least once or twice a month. It is the biggest town nearest us. The town itself is a National Park and is known for it's Hot Bath houses. It has been a destination for people wanting to try healing hot waters. There are open springs and then there are the old historic bathhouses.
There is also the only horse racing track in our state. The town is known for the doings of the Mafia back in the 1920's. In fact Capone hung out at the Ohio Club downtown. The old Ohio Club is still there.
Hot Springs downtown lies between 2 ranges of the Ouachita Mountains and therefore it sometimes has flash flooding. They have asked people not to park on Central Avenue for the next few days due to the rain we are supposed to get.
I just love our area as you can tell.
