John and I were out in the heavy rains yesterday, going from one doctor’s appointment to another. By late afternoon, the emergency messages began to pour into our electronic devices. There was flooding in two nearby towns, Clyde and Canton. Grandson David’s coworker couldn’t get home, so the manager took him to her own house for the night. Today neighbor Logan had no school, because all schools in the county were closed due to the flooding. We thought Jonathan Creek would be swollen this morning, but we walked there and found it was not unusually high.
We don’t think the creek overflowed anywhere in our valley. We live on a lower slope of a mountain. If water ever rose this high, it would be catastrophic, and you probably wouldn’t hear from me again. Today the weather is gorgeous – sunny with blue skies and white clouds.
