I turned the TV on to see if I might get a break in the pouring rain to do the morning chores. No such luck !!
After my morning devotions I started a day of inside housework that has been put off for a couple weeks.
I watched the rain come down and the creek in the bottom pasture rise all day. Normally the water isn't visible and already before lunch time it looks like this.
After sloshing through evening chores I checked the rain gauge and saw 2 1/2 " in there at 6:00pm.
After supper the rains got really hard and thunder and lightening along with high winds made it an interesting early evening for sure with the worst of the stormy front waiting until after darkness fell to unleash its fury.
The creek that has licked the bank tops all day finally jumped out filling the bottoms with flood waters after dark, as we used flashlights to watch the rising flood waters with the cattle in the bottom pastures. I wonder what the new flood preventative measures that were taken with the new bridge will look like in the morning?
Thankfully the rain stopped after dropping another almost 2 inches by about 10pm.
The wind has died down and hopefully it will be a quiet night.
In the decade pictures this is one dated October 1954, it is my first cousins Sam,on left, and Don Cox who belonged to my mother's sister Gertie Mae Cox and her husband Herman.
Praying tonight for the wreck victims I talked about last night as I found out this morning the elderly man was the father of a friend and fellow church member of mine. Praying for both these families in this very tragic situation.
May God comfort and somehow ease their pain during this time.
Good Night and God Bless.
