First is snowed, and snowed, and snowed for months.
It warmed a bit and all that snow started to melt and run off to the rivers.
And then it rained...
We had a horrendous storm come through and the rivers flooded the banks and into the streets.
The brown of the water and trees is just how it looked that morning. It was also really windy as the cold weather started working its way back in. You can see the ripples in the river/street.
This is a little more difficult to see the water in the grassy area. There is usually a large area between the river and road. Not so much here! We're expecting more rain in a couple days.
My thoughts are with those folks north of here who are still underwater, as the dam in that area could not hold.
We're cautiously optimistic that things down here will hold, but if you're sending a prayer up anyway, please keep these folks in mind!
