The Rains Came Down As the Floods Came Up

And during this kind of rain, the wiseman's house was on the highest ground possible. And here are a few reasons why:

And while my sink hole has nothing on Guatemala- I could still loose small children in it, I'm sure.  Okay, Okay ... very small children.  But I could probably loose them in the hole of disappointment I have from my yard caving in (I know, wah wah right).

But LK thought he could divert the water with some strategically placed tarps.  They held up okay during the day, we'll have to see how they faired once tonight's storm passes.

However, after seeing the news, I will no longer be complaining that rain is coming in my fireplace, that the creek took away the sandbox, that the laundry room had approximately 5 gallons of water in it when I awoke this morning, that my backyard has caved in on one corner, or that my newly painted bedroom had water pooling between the wall and the paint.  Because compared to the 50-60,000.00 dollars of damages some people have- I'm going to change my thoughts from this being one bad "case of the Mondays" to being pretty blessed.

Prayers and thoughts are with those whose damage is more,

Oh my goodness, I totally thought of you guys. Please call Erick if you need any roof advice. Well, at least you didn't have to go hiking downstream to retrieve the little tikes playset. :)
