To say we are all a little waterlogged would be an understatement...and the forecast does not leave us with much hope for sunny days until Monday. Really? Yes, really the weather man says rain, rain, and more rain! YIKES! Our county remain under a flood watch until midnight tonight. The county schools were on a 2 hour delay this morning due to flooding. I went out today and took some pictures of some of streams/ rivers close to home. So take a peek at all our WATER....
This is the stream at the edge of our property. No it does not look like lots of water but it is usually pretty much dry. So it is up a good bit.
This is the opposite side of the stream.... which of course is also usually much lower.
Now we will move on a little further from my house...
Both of these are of Middle River on Frank's Mill Road...It one of the rivers that runs through much of this part of the county. The water appeared to have receded a little but the water is still ROLLING.... and is out of the banks on one side of the river.
This is the Middle River as well....it is a different location. This is in Churchville. The river runs behind some churches, a picnic pavilion, and park.
This is outside my son's school facing the baseball fields...water is just sitting everywhere. Doesn't look like ball will be played here for a couple of days. :(
This was the bottom of my driveway yesterday about this time just as a thunderstorm rolled through....
This was what the bottom of the driveway looked around 9 am this morning. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly the water "disappears". However, it leaves behind a mess and destruction.
Guess where all that water took the gravel from my driveway....Yep! Into the road and left behind this....
a big 'ole rut in the driveway that now I have to dodge when I go in and out. We just fixed this last summer. Guess I know what the hubby will be doing once all this rain stops.
Well, there is a bright side in all this rain. The grass will be green, green, green and the flowers...I mean weeds are blooming beautifully. Take a look....
I found these beauties all along the bank in front of my house. It reminds us that God is in control and that there is beauty even in the yucky stuff if we just take the time to look around us.
Well, It is about time to start the dinner and homework routine. How is the weather your way?
Until next time....may your heart be merry and your day be blessed :)
