Fay, Fay, go away........
more cat pictures
I can't believe this "Tropical Storm"! I mean, what did we do to piss off the Gods?
Every day they say " Oh, she's gonna move off to the west/east/north" and such but NOOOOOOOOOO! She's hanging in here like a dog with a meaty bone!
Tuesday was not too bad. Rainy, but nothing we couldn't handle. Yesterday it just kept up. Band after band of stormy weather. I went to work at @ 10:30 am, and we lost power at the store around 1pm. I kept hearing about roads flooding all around town, so my bosses sent me home. OMFG! I had to drive down past the main road to my house ( flooded!) down several back roads( also flooded, but not as bad) to my street. I didn't get 20 ft. in when my car almost got totally swamped! I had to pull into a driveway at the end of my street so as not to ruin my car! Thankfully, I know these people, and they said it was no problem to leave my car there until the waters went down. ( which I did this morning).
Let me show you:
My "street" yesterday. as you can see, only the tops of the front lawns were dry ( which is how I got home yesterday. I had to run through the rain in my work clothes ( with no umbrella, which wouldn't have worked had I had one lol!)across the lawns to my house. Another view:
My back yard:
I think our drought is over now!
Please, PLEASE pray that this storm starts moving. We here on the East-Central coast of Florida can't take too much more rain. Already they are talking about boiling water- sewer systems overflowing, and general nasty stuff.
Besides, if I spend too many more days stranded in this house with my kids and my hubby- someone's gonna get hurt!!! ;-)
Peace and Love, KC
