When It Rains, It Pours

A dry creek bed encircles our property on two sides. It rarely runs, and it usually isn't very much. Yesterday was an exception; it rained from about 2 pm on. Taken from the safety of the house:

Once the thunder and lightning receded into the distance, I ventured outside with my camera safely hidden in a pocket, beneath an umbrella.

We even had small rapids in our backyard!

As for the title, I was sure I could come up with some larger, life-related metaphors for "when it rains, it pours", but I'm drawing a blank. I'm sure they're out there. I just don't think it counts to say my memory has gone from bad to worse. (Or maybe it's just my imagination.)
