the normal view is blacktop to the street, then the parking lot in front of the grocery store.
Today's good news is that no more rain till possibly tomorrow. We are lucky to be on the hill, but not to go unscathed, we have water in our house basement under control. The small usually dry creekbed is rushing with the sounds of a waterfall behind the retreat. Water is oozing out of the ground everywhere. There is not an ounce to obsorb anywhere. I refuse to do the laundry because the septic mound just doesn't need anymore water.
So say a prayer for the folks downstream. We need to stop our ordinary lives and help those in need. They are our neighbors, our communities.
Take care , Patsy squish, squish, squish.
