Rain, rain, rain...on and on. Has not been this wet around here for a very long time.
The creeks, the rivers, the catch basins, the tiny streams...all overflowing their banks.
Our schools and businesses are closed. The Red Cross has many shelters open. Basements that have not seen water for a long time or ever, are getting water. The rain keeps on coming.
It rained heavy on Monday evening, but the family get together on the big, old porch went on. The candles were lit, the coffee was poured, and the children found their own entertainment. They collected plastic cup after plastic cup full of water. Just in case your mothering caution exists like mine does, the big coffee pot on the left, was not plugged in.
This was the beginning of the rain. Today it continues on, endlessly.
I think so often of the people in Texas, who would love to see these sights.
They haven't seen rain for so long, and their fires need rain like ours.
My heart is sad for all those who are experiencing flooding today.
As I sit here writing this post, the heavy rain continues.
Thanks so much for stopping by. If you are from one of the states that are so dry now, I wish I could share this with you.
