tornados, ice storms, snow, now flooding...

tuesday and wednesday...

when i say the last two days have run together, i mean it!!! they have literally RUN together. from 7am yesterday morning until 7am this morning (wednesday), we have received between 6 and 8 inches of rain in our area, which has caused major flooding, a state of emergency for neighboring evansville, and another day out of school for the students of henderson county as well as those around us.

to say that the weather in this area has been crazy since the first of the year, would be an absolute understatement!!! in january, we started with two weeks of tornado watches and warnings because the temperatures were so warm. however, our temperatures quickly dropped (due to the cold fronts that moved through causing sever weather), and we had several weeks of ice (to the tune of 2 to 4 inches at a time). then came the snow!!!

the kids here actually would have had 1 of 2 event-free, no-interruption weeks at school last week (had there not been a bomb threat...:/). it seemed as though weather-wise we might be out of the woods other than the april showers that we always get.

NOT 2 B!!!

for, it started to rain; and, it rained and rained and rained and rained some more... causing not only the last two days to run together but just about everything else in town (as well as the county)!!!

thank you, God, everyone is safe!!!

i love weather... in moderation, PLEASE!!! i love the heroes that get out and help those who are trapped and are in need of rescue!!! and i love sump-pumps:D
