Thank-you everyone for sending good thoughts and prayers our way.
Today is looking oh so much better. The river crested yesterday at 61.2 feet and it may have set a new record. (our flood stage is 47 ft.) It was a scary scene yesterday morning. I thought oh my gosh, it's not going to hold. But it did and they are predicting the water will start to recede today.
Everything was rebuilt after the big Flood of 1993.
This is the view of the Black River yesterday morning around 8:00 a.m.
It was a scary scene.
It looked higher than the big flood of 93 and they were keeping the residents they had evacuated out.
My daughter is doing fine, no baby yet. That little girl seems to have her own time table.
This is right off of main street, near our local utility plant. Water is not supposed to be here.
And early last evening they allowed residents they had evacuated back into their homes.
My daughter was able to get back to her apartment.
We are very lucky here.
They are still monitoring the river but they think we have seen the worst of it.
Just down the road from us, in the little town where my sister resides things have been devastated.
The school she teaches at is surrounded by water.
Her home, just outside of town is fine but many others have not been that lucky.
Thank-you again for your thoughts and prayers. You are all the best!
I am so lucky to have my wonderful blogging friends.
