|Front yard to Field Lake - water higher now|
|See the truck? Water now up to there|
|Neighbors' boats - now include a pontoon!|
|Margie, Hoss - enjoy the water!|
|Field Lake and covered road|
We are lucky - even those needing to get to home by boat. We have homes. No one has died from our storms. We did not have the tornadoes in our area. Are we more blessed? No, but certainly we are blessed - neighbors check on neighbors; friends have called and emailed me to be sure we are OK. I heard people at work checking on colleagues, not concerned over "tardiness" when someone was dealing with water and very diverse routes to get in. Today, I live in gratitude and joy. I watched a very small girl "help" her mom unload her basket this evening. She even helped with the debit card. She was charming, innocent and gave those of us waiting as well as the checker a genuine smile for the evening. Have a good night.
Allie - keep the faith; saw you had quite the time. Sorry to hear. Prayers for both you, Kelly and Christy.
