Over the past few days I have been so grateful that we are no longer living in that dilapidated old tin can we had before moving down here…. remember that one? All the leaks, the plumbing problems, the indoor wading pools causing us to replace the floor at least 3 times…

 

Ingrid is here… okay, not here here but she’s reaching out and touching us. We are surviving and it hasn’t been as bad (so far) as predicted. There has been loads of rain, at times very heavy rain, but it’s been coming in waves. It rains for a while then stops. This pattern is really good because it has allowed for the water to run off or soak in preventing any serious flooding. This may change soon though… on my way home from work I noticed that many of the pastures, fields, and yards have standing water. The ground is officially saturated… hard to achieve in the valley. Me thinks the next waves of heavy rain may cause that flooding we’ve been watching for.

Both these pictures were taken Sunday before we were really getting much of anything from Ingrid. She made landfall in Mexico this morning.

That’s really all the news I have. My days have been consumed with emergency management type stuff… getting ready for worst case scenario, trying to reassure people that it won’t be worst case scenario and if it is that we’re ready… watching the radars and alerts, chatting it in the NOAA weather chat rooms… weeee!

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Yikes! Stay safe down there! I hope the rain will at least cool things a bit for you.

  2. Good luck. I will be thinking of you and hoping for the best.
