In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

More flooding pics...

These are going to be the last of the flood pics, I promise.  I just thought you might want to see what's going on in our town....state actually.
 
  So  my Shug gets to work this morning and sends me this picture.  It's a car in the parking lot where he works.  Yes, that is snow. 

 
 And these photos were on facebook.  This is by one of the bridges you take to get into town, next to Foster Park.  It is completely under water. 
 This is a bus by The American Legion Golf Course, on the other side of town.
 More town pics

 And these are from yesterday late afternoon.  I decided to go into town.  I wanted to go to the bank, go to the yarn store, and get a latte.  You know...have a little social time.
 As you can see from the above town pictures, I could not get to the other side of town for the latte or yarn.  And the traffic was HORRIBLE!  The main thoroughfare is down to one lane due to construction, and it's always a mess, but with most of the roads closed, it was a HUGE mess.
 So I came back home.  But here are a few pics I took along the way, from my car.
 This is someones yard.

 Wildcat Creek


 And lest you think this rain just affected our town, think again.  Here is a picture of Elwood, IN that was on facebook.  First thing yesterday morning Zionsville was in a state of Emergency and later in the day, Tipton was in a state of emergency.
The above photo is the suspension bridge at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana.


 But never fear....the SUN IS SHINING right now!

 We can make finger puppets on the wall!
 We can hi five our shadow!

 
We can hang things out to dry!!!!  YAY!  Come on SUNSHINE!

  1. Oh my! Same an hour south of us. We are supposed to be dry for a couple of days before more rain is due on Tuesday. The sun is shining here also but it is still cold. Not sure if it hit the 40 degree mark yet. We have not even had a 70 degree day yet this spring. Weatherman said the longest we have had to wait for 70 degree weather was May 3rd in the past. Hoping we will not have to wait that long. Not one bit of lawn work or gardening done yet. :(

    1. Hey Brenda, We are dry now too and I woke up to sunshine today! WOOHOO! It's supposed to get in the low 60's too. I'll take it. I hear ya about the gardening. A lot of people that did start their gardens lost everything. Seems we have gone from one extreme to the other. Last year drought, this year, too wet.

    1. Jill,

      A lot of people lost everything. I do try to make the best of things...but I gotta be honest, I don't know how I would handle it if I were them. So sad and scary. No place to stay, and if they do go to a shelter they can't take their pets. People are trying to help them by taking their pets in and giving clothes and food and shelter.

  4. So glad you're high and dry, Cindy! We're now in St. Louis and experienced some of those rainstorms - Thursday was just plain scary. Walked down to the Mississippi earlier today to see it lapping at the edge of the road - it's due to peak a good 9 feet higher on Tuesday as the storm surge comes down river. I think St. Louis has had it much, much easier than places further north though and I'm so thankful we haven't had snow - I didn't pack clothes for snow! How's it going with clearing out the house?

    1. We are safe Fi. And the waters have receded. We just hope we can get everyone back on their feet that lost everything.

      Now, I keep trying to add your new blog to my side bar. It shows up on my list, but when I save and view blog, it is never there. Do you know why?

  9. My prayers are with your family and your town. When the tornado wiped out parts of our city, it was amazing to see all the helping hands. I hope you have a better week.

    1. I love seeing towns ban together Mrs. C. I hear ours has shelters open to people and lots of donation areas. We'll be ok. Thanks for the prayers.
