Sink holes in the rain

This isn't exactly new around here because I've had small ones before. This is from the heavy rain we had last night that I slept through. Someone reported nearly 4" and my pool did overflow from 3" below the rim. I'm afraid the dirt is inside my little French Drain cistern that should have been surrounded by rocks and gravel but wasn't. Another reason the hole is here is it's right below a roof drain. So, I'm going to fill this hole with rocks as soon as it stops raining.

Invest 95E just came by and is now north of us. Dropped a lot of rain even though it never became a storm. Now we have Invest 96E following right behind to wet us some more. Turning out to be a wet year. I'm off to fill the wheelbarrow with some big rocks.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
