Woke to sunshine streaming through the bedroom window this morning !!! G-son was here at 7:00 so hubbie took him to school while I did morning chores and assessed the flooding still around our place.
This is the front pasture around 9am.
We got home around lunch time.
After we ate we headed down to the pastures to check out the fences. Luckily there was only one bottom wire broken along the road fence and not much debris caught in the fences either.
Annie knows the creek water is way too high and swift for a dip today.
He ate then played outside for most of the afternoon. I felt the temperature drop significantly this evening as the sun went down. It feels like a fall evening instead of a mid May evening.
#1 son had to work over this evening clearing the land slide off one of the local roads.
Here he is on the left discussing the clean-up plan.
Here I emptied another 1 1/2 inches from the gauge this morning bringing the total since Saturday evening to 6 inches !!!
And now they say tonight is going to bring more heavy rain as another band of this slow moving system comes over our area.
Hubbie and I are nursing sore muscles after our activity this afternoon. His back is hurting and I slipped in the mud and popped my knee so it is really hurting tonight. At 10:00 it is 49 degrees.
Tonight folks are saying the French Broad River is higher than it has been in years. Floodwaters are not receding quickly at all after all the soaking rain of the last couple weeks and with the forecast of more rain it is just going to get higher.
Thanking God tonight for the safety of family and friends and for the blessings He sent my way today.
Good Night and God Bless.
