Storms

Our little town made the national weather news this weekend.  By the looks of today, you wouldn't know that last night was the worst storm we've experienced in years.  Lightning, thunder, rain, flooded streets, streets closed, power outages.  Several of our friends have flooded basements - some with up to 4 feet!  We were fortunate, even with 7.5 inches of rain in 24 hours, to have a minor sprinkle in the basement.  Praise God!  

My sister Leah got stranded last night in waist high water in her new minivan.  We will find out today if the vehicle is salvageable.  She just got it as a gift on Wednesday!  Pray that the engine just needs to dry out.

Now, to help the others clean up!

Wow. Glad to hear you stayed nearly dry! I couldn't fall asleep last night until the thunder ended.
