I feel sure, anyone with a TV, radio or computer knows about the rain, tornadoes, and storms that have plagued the MidSouth/South all weekend and still moving thru causing so much devastation and loss of life. :( I have stayed high and dry, however not everyone has been so fortunate.
My daughter lives approx. 100 miles further North, and they watched as the water kept rising until it reached their porch last night. They were among the fortunate ones, as it started going down at that point. She said they did not go to bed until almost daylight this morning, as they were afraid the water would come in the house - after they waded in "knee deep" water to retrieve some shoes that floated out of the carport.
I do know, there are a lot of fellow bloggers in "blogland" that live in the MidSouth/South that have already experienced these storms, and many more that are in the path of these storms. I think I heard earlier today, that a state of emergency has been declared in Jackson and surrounding area, due to flooding and crumbling roads, etc. Nashville, Franklin and outlying areas are being bombarded as I sit here typing. The flooding going on in Nashville right now is devastating. The rain/storms are headed NE, so anyone in their path - please take cover. If you believe in the power of prayer, I feel sure the many victims of these storms/flooding would appreciate your prayers.
Lets just say, I spent a lot of time "taking cover " in the bathroom this weekend. The sun is shining here now as I type and they are saying we are "out of the woods" this go around, and suppose to have nice weather the next several days.
Dab of This and That:
I took this picture of my courtyard about 1 1/2 weeks ago - sure does not look like that now! But the predicted sunshine should take care of that, except for the azaleas as most of the blooms were stripped off from the heavy rains. Waiting till things dry up a bit, before I go out to clean up the storm debris. I am not complaining, I feel fortunate that is the only cleanup I have to do from the storms.
So - What did I do when not huddled in the bathroom and praying? Looked at paint charts as I hope to get some painting done in a couple of weeks, finished up a couple of jewelry projects and things such as that.
Hope everyone has a great week.
