P.lus S.ome more.....
On the last post, I mentioned how fast the rain had come and how our little foot bridge was damaged.
Last night's rain took our little bridge completely and left this trail of how high the water level came. Our neighbor's bridges are gone too! One neighbor was out early and said that he watched the water level all night in our creek and driving around town at the wee hours to find main 4 lane roads in town down to one passable. In the 22 years we have lived here, it's never been like this. My husband's business was flooded out too and he's up early with his employees to clean carpet. I'll head out to help in a bit.
Mother Nature can be fearsome sometimes and watching our nation and the tornado and flood conditions elsewhere, I'm extremely grateful that our house is intact and it wasn't worse. The week's forecast? Rain.
