It took me nearly an hour and half to get home.
My FIT almost drowned so I stayed put in an apartment complex
and watched the road being closed off due to the high waters.
I got a little farther, but had to take shelter again from a torrent
of rain and hail. Just look at the water flowing in the alley!
|Glad I had some survival food.|
Big trashcans floating down the street!
It has done nothing but rain all month and the ground is so saturated
that every downpour has no place to seep. We are floating, soggy,
and bewildered. It's surreal. Over the years, I've had dreams
of water causing grave destruction. Cars in creeks, trees uprooted,
houses turned on their foundations and water levels reaching building
heights. These are wild dreams but I'm seeing some of this in my own
state. The rain will subside, as there will be drought again, but I
think the rains may return more with greater fury. Water will be a problem.
And something more beautiful . . . one morning in my prairie yard . . .
the wild onions strung festive beads among themselves.
