*paging Noah, Brother Noah...*

We don't live on a bank of a river. But this is what has become of the area behind our backyard. It has been raining non-stop for 2 days now. Not an on again/off again shower or occasional sprinkle. We are talking relentless, constant downpours. The drops are huge--you cannot NOT get wet. It's been raining sideways. Sometimes it even feels like it's raining up from the ground. There has been massive flooding here, but so far we are OK--despite the view from my kitchen window. Despite the fact that Mariah suggests we move to higher ground.

We skipped our trip to Gig Harbor for Isaiah's physical therapy today. They issued a wind gust warning for the Tacoma-Narrows Bridge. If you aren't familiar with "Galloping Gertie", here ya go:

Soooo, we stayed put.

Wake me when the sun comes back out...or at least when the Ark is completed.

Even though that happened a long time ago and the bridge has since been replaced, I didn't see the point of taking any chances, lol!

You have got to be kidding me! Or as Grannannie would say, "Oh come on!"
