FLOOD--

Yesterday--Sunday--
I was busy watching NASCAR--
and all their Red flags for rain-
and was really busy stitching on a wool block--
and I did realize that 'we' had had a couple--three--
heavy rain storms--
but still did not think too much about it--
around 7pm--just after another storm the sun came out--
so out I went with camera in hand to look for a rain bow--
did not find one--
but was surprised to see large puddles of water--
so had fun photographing the reflections into the water--
went down to the lake and was surprised to see how 'high' the water level had gotten from just earlier in the day when I was down there--
and so very muddy--
as I was walking along the boardwalk --
I noticed a line of semi's --stopped--
coming down the hill into town and thought maybe there had been an accident--
Ahh--but no--
it was a flood--
this is on the opposite side of where I took the photo of the trucks and was not taken by me--
I have 'borrowed' it from one of the newsites--
and let me tell you that is alot of water--
most of main street was this bad!!!
this is what it looked like by the time I got there--
with alot of damage along this part of town--
Soon after these photos they did shut down our whole county as all the roads where in bad shape and flooded!!

we have not had alot more rain--
but there is more in the forecast for today and tomorrow--
and we have dark skies!!!

Tomorrow I will show you the stitchery that I did yesterday--ok???
Smiles, diandmissgracie

  1. Oh my gosh! I'm glad we were there last week and not this week! And I'm glad you live on the second floor. I actually thought the lake level was pretty high last week, but this is incredible. Stay safe and dry.
