As of early this morning, we can boast of living on island property - we are surrounded by water & all roads leading to our little town are closed. Of course, we're safe & dry & in no danger of flooding ourselves (and we're together, the most important thing!), which is much more than what most people can say - my heart just aches for everyone whose houses have been invaded by rivers & who've had to evacuate. We're thinking anxiously of my parents & sister, whose houses are right in the line of fire. They've spent yesterday & today moving belongings to higher ground & sandbagging where they're able; the only thing left to do is wait & hope. Sigh.
No 4 mile walk for us today! The trail was officially closed about 2 minutes after we took this picture.
No playing in the park either!
In a little while, if it stops raining, I think we'll venture out to take more pictures. For now, we're happy to be inside & out of the downpour.
