Rain Rain Go Away

We got home at 6:00am Friday morning and it had already starting raining. It hasn't stopped for long since. The flooding is getting bad in the low areas of town. Our local Goodwill, Rite Aid, Rent-A-Center and other stores in this shopping center, got covered in a foot of water and they had to close down. The fire trucks and police were there to make sure everyone got out safe and that no electrical fires started from the water rushing in the stores. You can see in the picture below where the water line was before the water receded to where it's at now. I hope we don't get too much more rain in the next couple days.
Some of the workers in the stores had their cars get stuck in the water before they even realized it. So unfortunate.

This is another low part of town. At least they got the guys out of the truck, when I drove by the first time, they were both still in it. I'm glad the police came to block the road of because some foolish people were still trying to cross the road.

So, tonight I will be praying for the rain to stop for a while!

  1. We've had thunderstorms for the past couple days too, really severe ones, though no flooding in our town praise God. What's amazing is that the mornings are clear and sunny, then the storms come in unexpectedly. Hopefully the flooding will stop, it's a dangerous situation to be in.

    Glad you're back home safe and sound. Now back to "normal" life (if there is such a thing!). My daughter leaves for school today and E starts school tomorrow. It's the last remnants of summer vacation; fall is almost upon us! I can't wait to see the pictures of your vacation. I hope to get some of mine posted soon, if the lightning stops. I don't like being on the computer during thunderstorms. Well, off to church we go. Have a blessed Sunday.
