Is that an Ark I see before me?

It's raining
It's poring
The old man is snoring
He went to bed
And bumped his head
And couldn't get up in the morning.

It's currently raining.  Big, fat drops coming down with the gusto of a hungry puppy attacking a bone.  Three minutes ago, it wasn't raining.  In three minutes it will have stopped.  It's been like that all day.  And all yesterday.  And the day before that.

We have had so much rain there is major flooding all over the state.  With more to come.

Luckily, our house is on top of a hill.  In a town on top of a hill. 

Unless there really is a man out there building a big boat and shepherding the animals on in pairs, I think we'll be right.

Sending warm, sunny, non-wet thoughts to all the folks out there filling sandbags and building weirs around their houses or raising their life possessions off floor level. 

Be strong.

  1. In a follow up note about our town being on top of a hill - didn't stop the flood. Two days later we had so much rain in such a short period that it created an 'instant inland tsunami' (official description - not mine).

    It was terrible. It resulted in the loss of a lot of property and too many lives.

    The whole region was hit. There are still search-and-rescue operations underway and they expect to still be finding bodies of the missing in weeks to come. It is so sad and so terrible. A tragedy that is hard to comprehend.
