Saturated.

It's been raining this weekend.  A lot. So much so that there are several flood watches and warnings in effect for the area (several nearby rivers are expected to crest over the next two days).  Many local schools have already cancelled for tomorrow.  (Based on the ones that have already called off, I would venture to say that at the very least, Mike will be home tomorrow.)  One of my friends had to evacuate her home earlier today, because otherwise she would have been trapped.  Several people we know are dealing with flooded basements.  We're lucky...so far all we're dealing with is a series of small leaks along the outer wall of our garage.  (Living on a hill might be tricky in the winter, but it's not so bad during times like this.)

Here are a couple of shots from the drive back from church this morning.  It's not as close to the road as it looks, but the water is still pretty high.  It's rained pretty consistently since then, and now (11:00 pm) it's finally starting to taper off.



On the plus side, our pond with leakage issues is full, if only for a few days.  I'll share pics of that when things dry up enough to walk back there.

If you'd like to say a prayer or two for those affected by this nasty weather, I'm sure they won't mind.  Here's to a sun-shiny Monday!

Yeah, My sister said where they live got hit hard too! It is raining here now. I will say prayers for everyone. I think people don't really think about flooding being soooo dangerous, but it is just as bad as anything else! Love, Jess

Hello fellow Kentuckian! Glad your house is staying dry. We were lucky in that even though we had a ton of rain, our county didn't flood too bad and we were able to have school.
Thanks for checking out my blog. ;)
