More Water in the Neighborhood
This morning when Daddy D and I left for church, the ditch was quite full from yesterday's torrential downpour. Also, although rain was falling, the precipitation was light as we left our home. However, when we attended the worship services, the rainfall steadily increased, and perhaps 2-3 more inches fell. As we arrived home the lake in front of our home was even more expansive. We knew the water was at least knee deep in places so we parked the car at a local business and waded through the floodwaters to our house. When we arrived at our house, we were delighted to find the power on and the sump pump was steadily removing water from the seeping basement.
Although this flooding is bothersome and inconvenient, we are really doing well. Currently, the water level is slowly dropping outside. Additionally, the rain has virtually stopped falling. Furthermore, as Annie sang, "The sun will come out tomorrow." Or at least, there is sunshine in the forecast.
Although there are flood waters in the foreground if you look closely, you can spot a faint rainbow in the sky, a symbol of the good weather to follow. Friends, take care and stay dry.
