The 'Monsoons' and some cards!!!!
Now some of you may have heard in the news that we in Connecticut are 'floating away' on our rivers which have overrun their banks.....and closed roads......flooded basements......and all sorts of WET mayhem. These two pics will give you just a tiny taste of what people are dealing with.......the worst flooding is in areas I can't get a parking place or view to take a picture. Many roads nearby are closed for safety purposes. Ponds/lakes/rivers/brooks are flooding almost everything, In one place in central CT, a condo complex's parking lot dropped 50 feet and one of the buildings had the ground underneath it washed away......PHEW!!!!
This picture shows a small brook near a friend's house. As you can see, it cannot be identified as a 'brook' at the moment.....more like a raging river!!! Normally if I stood in the same place and took a pic you wouldn't even know there was any water.....just a low babbling brook out of sight.
Anne (jdmommy) mentioned once that she came to the flea market here in town once......well...that would be totally impossible as the river has taken over the parking lot around that old mill building and I am sure the lower levels are FILLED with river water........you must certainly respect the power of water and Mother Nature. Even though the rain has mostly stopped, evacuations are still going on in town. A condo complex is currently in the midst of a madatory evacuation.
Anyhoo...I wish each of you a dry, safe, sunny day.......we are among the lucky ones....no water in our basement AND we are on some higher land......TG!!!!!
