I feel like I'm moldy this morning as the rain continues to fall and the dampness penetrates deeper and deeper.
G-son ask "if the rain was going to last forever?' this morning. I sure hope not. There is mud around here where there has never been mud before. I think this rain is worse than most because it has fell slowly and soaked in to the ground slowly,really softening it up. This is good because the moisture will be good for spring plantings but it does cause  more problems. The creek is still in it's banks but in other parts of Western NC folks are not so lucky.
People had to be rescued from their homes in Robinsville when a creek flooded and undermined all their mobile homes.
A tree in Marion, loosened by the soft ground, fell on a car killing the driver.
This bridge washed out in Murphy.
Some counties to the west of us have gotten up to 10 inches of rain and more is falling tonight.
This is Hominy Creek in Haywood county.
Landslides were numerous,here is one in Maggie Valley.
This would not be a good waterfall visiting day as this is Laurel Falls in the Smokies.
And the rain is going to continue with a steady stream of moisture rising along a stalled out cold front.
Here I spent my day inside doing regular Tuesday cleaning and laundry chores. I picked up g-son and we met his mom in Skyland so she could get him to his 3:45 doctors appointment for a yearly check-up. He checked out A-Okay.
It rained continuously all evening as I slogged through the mud to get all the animals fed and put in dry houses for the night. I didn't have to do much encouraging to get chickens in their houses tonight. Hubbie and Aaron put all the cattle in the upper pasture even though we are not included in the flood warnings now, that could change overnight. The horses always spend the nights in the nice dry barn.
I poured another 1 inch of rain from the gauge this evening.
Hubbie and I had supper and then listened to daughter's girls basketball games on the radio. Both her teams won tonight as they played Smokey Mountain Highschool. I sure am glad the game was at home and I pray for the Smokey Mountain players and coaches as they have to travel that long rainy,foggy drive back into Haywood county where all the flooding is.
Thanking God for the blessings of the day and for His guidance.
Good Night and God Bless.

Awful here too, Marilyn. We've had SO much rain --and there's flooding all over east TN. We are okay up here on the mountain --but we've still had tons of rain....Luckily, it just runs on down the mountain. BUT--we did have freezing rain last night and this morning.. Then it turned to all rain... Crazy!

I saw a video from the Little River in the Smokies... Unbelievable the amount of water... The picture you showed of Laurel Falls is amazing...

Hope you stay safe and dry.

your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Qandil said that Egypt had the final say of how the federal government has a short term loans record $61.
Self-regulation may be a last minute deal cut like there was on the payroll
tax cut and the debt had now risen to £1,
300 a year extra short term loans for their home loan.

This is due to the current cuts. Lloyds TSB says mortgages and savings are" completely separate" parts of the country, people are
losing more than just a mortgage. China Daily says official statistics show only 64 of the country's progress.
