OK…and why do I have so much time on my hands tonight? I am sitting here trying to keep dry. I am glad that DH took me for a little ride down our roads to see if they were even open. Well, they all had water rushing over them and we could not tell if there was a road under them or not. We had just gotten our only other way out of our farm fixed 1 week ago. We were thrilled to know we had another way out again if the east road finally gave out. Hmmm…what were we thinking to be so optimistic? I for one will NOT drive through rushing water late at night just to get to work. Not that I don’t want to be there…I just happen to enjoy my life a little better than I like my job.
The local sheriff said on the news tonight that all rural roads were supposed to be closed. That would definitely be me.
I don’t have it as bad as western ND. There are 12,000 people being evacuated from their homes and they are not sure when they will be back. Thank Goodness our National Guard will be watching the place for them. If we only had a way of channeling all that water down to AZ, most of our problems would be solved. Well, at least a good portion of them.
What finally prompted me to finally blog was 1. I had the night off and 2. Someone on one of my boards asked for a cutting design of a duck flying out of the water. Well, how appropriate because I see ducks flying out of water trying to find dry land right now.
