I use to think of my backyard as a swamp. Being in a new development, we're on the brink of nature. So, it's not a surprise if snakes and mice and moles travel through our backyard.
Not until yesterday morning did I see my thoughts become reality. We opened the blinds and found a growing river right outside our door! I mean a river! I'm sure if we had cast out a line, we'd have caught something - maybe a bass or some lawn chair or a small pet.
Needless to say, news reports and pictures began "flooding" the news, showing similar and worse picture of people stranded, cars submerged, a house floating down the interstate.
Someone build an ark already!
I have never seen or experienced anything like this in my life.
I was happy this morning to be leaving the house to head to Atlanta for '500 Songs for Kids" at Smithe's Old Bar. I was excited to get out of the glum and monsoon until I found out that we are leaving only to be heading into more tornado / flood fun.
Maybe we'll be sleeping at the bar tonight...haha
