Just a quick update on today, last night we received notice that we are on a voluntary evacuation, of course that would be fine if the roads around us where not flooded and we could evacuate. Based on maps of the flood plain, projected rainfall and our position in the sub-division we are a little hopeful that water might not make the house but it is very close. I am not going to lie this is scary and I did get upset last night, not only for my family but for all those touched by bloody Harvey. I can not emphasise enough the vulnerability you feel. It made me think about all the things that have been happening in the world recently, in particular terrorism and racial disputes. The interesting thing about nature is that it is all-powerful and it does not discriminate for race or religion. We would be wise to consider that sometimes. One positive is that is forces people and neighbors to come together regardless of race, gender, religion and sexual orientation and help support one another.
We have rain forecast for the foreseeable future and they are suggesting another 3-5ft which is crazy town. I see another storm on the East Coast is brewing and am thinking of them. I attach some photos of my walk with Gertie today, honestly I know it is selfish but I was going stir crazy inside so the opportunity for some air was welcomed. Again thanks friends who have reached out and those who have contacted my family for info. We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives.
