Ike Reaches the Midwest
Hang in there, St. Louis. Just four more hours of heavy rain. That's what the guy on The Weather Channel just said. Seriously. Makes you want to punch him.
Ike's wrath clearly was not limited to Texas. And look out Chicago. I know you got dumped on yesterday, too, but it's coming your direction next.
My mom's friend who lives a mile or so away just called. The water is inches from their front door! Our back yard is under water and the front ... as bad as I've ever seen it. And it's getting worse. I'm afraid we may be in the same boat as the mother's friend soon.
Cross your fingers that this lets up soon.
On a happier note, the backyard doesn't always look this way. One Project closer chose my fence project to highlight today! This is a wonderful program that they do and I'm proud to have been included.
Well, I'm back to water patrol. I guess I'd better go find the Bible passage with the ark dimensions in it. We may be needing it very soon ...
