I woke up to the sound of thunder this morning. As I lay in bed trying to go back to sleep I could hear the rain as it hit the damaged gutter we have out back. It was a steady rain, not too hard but at least the weather wasn’t supposed to get bad today. Or so I thought.
For the first time in many years I got up before the kids did. I woke up with a headache so I went to the kitchen and grabbed some pain killer. As I walked passed the front door I noticed that the streets were wet and was still raining a good bit.
Once the kids got up we had our Christmas, had our breakfast, everyone had their showers, got dressed and out the door to the in laws. Once we got to the in laws the rain had stopped but it was only for a short time. As we were leaving the in laws the clouds had darkened and thunder could be heard in the distance. We hadn’t made it home but just a few minutes when we heard the tornado sirens going off in the distance. Seriously? The weather radio was soon going off and downstairs we went into our safe place.
Since then it’s been nothing but wide spread flooding, roads being washed away and people being rescued. It’s been the wettest Christmas I can ever remember. Rain is in the forecast for the next several days. We probably won’t dry out until sometime next year.
