Toad in my door

The other day we had a crazy, crazy rainstorm; it was a sideways rainstorm that knocked down a branch and flooded the back yard. All of the stuff on the picnic table was blown away and we had branches from trees that we did not recognize all over the yard. The next morning, this little guy was sheltered in our doorway. He usually lives in the hole next to the Carolina Jessamine but I guess his home got flooded. I gently prodded him with a twig until he hopped off into the yard (I didn't want him to get squished by the screen door). Hopefully he is dining well on all the flies that have been buzzing around and his home is cozy and dry. I think I will call him Jesse.
It is good to have a toad as a neighbor.
