If You Don't Have Anything Crocheted....

This picture was taken about 9 p.m. Tuesday night. I thought it was beautiful.

Early Wednesday morning about 2 a.m. it began to rain heavily.
By 9 a.m. Wednesday the area around the house looked like this. (That's Minnie Pearl, the neighbor's miniature horse. She was a little upset by the rising waters.)
There's a park across the street from the house. You can see the pavilion in the background. There's a creek that runs through the park that overflowed its banks.
This is the road that runs past the house.
This area has always flooded during heavy rains, and there doesn't seem to be anything that can be done about it. It's never gotten into this house, but the neighbors to the southwest haven't always been so lucky.

That sky is gorgeous! Your flooding pix remind me of Kansas. When it rained heavily there were always spots like yours that became miniature lakes. Ahhh..the joys of living in the flat lands. ::wink::

That sky is so beautiful. Oh by the way, guess who is making your vegetarian chili this weekend? Oh yes that would be me.
