Anyone Want to Borrow Some Water?

We have plenty to share.

The boys are begging to launch the canoe. If this downpour continues, it’s the only way we’ll be able to get out of our driveway.

ETA: At 10pm now the water is covering the main road. Over six hours of solid rain since I took the above picture. If it continues to rain, we won’t be able to get out of the driveway…even with the Suburban. Guess Russ is working from home tomorrow…  A car in town was swept out of a grocery store parking lot and into a creek. A man and a child were rescued, but they are still searching for the second child. Prayers would be appreciated. Rain is in the forecast for the next two days.

I love that picture. Did you take it from inside your car?

Ariana~ Do you notice how dark and gray it is? And oh, so wet and cold. You'd enjoy it for one day and then you'd want to go back to light and warmth. :) Yes, I took it from the car. No way I wanted to be standing out in that and get my camera soaked. Ha!

Kathy~ Lots of people in the NW are getting snow, but we're in the valley only have rain. And more rain. And more rain. I haven't seen the flooding like this in a loooong time. It's been raining for five solid hours since that picture. We can't even see the entrance to our driveway other than the huge rocks on either side(the water is covering them part way). The water is rushing over the driveway now and we can't see the grass at all. Fun stuff. :)

Did they find the child? I keep hoping you've updated.

A man and child were rescued, but the last I heard the child was fighting for his life in the hospital. A woman and another child did not survive. :( So tragic.
