The flooding had begun to receed. While we were in hospital, a major storm hit, but ourhospital is a solid building and while we did catch a glimpse thru the window - easy child did not have a window bed and we really did not kno how severe the storm was. Thru the nite storms continued, and shook the house, rattled things off walls and shelves. It roused me only enough to register it was storming, but thats nothing unusual. The news on TV showed some photos of some tornado activity in area and spoke of power outtages. (I have power, mine rrely goes out, can count on one hand how many times in 20 years) Got my newspaper in, and yes, some nasty storms, reflooding everything, closeing roads again. Then I looked in my BACK yard. UG! it is a huge mess and will require a LOT of my time energy and attention. <sigh> Hoping everyone weathered thru any storms OK and are safe. We are safe, our house is fine. I am coming close to declareing bankruptcy on my time, energy and attention, these days, tho. I hope flooded roads do not hinder the errands I MUST get done today.
