Stop the madness

Hermine is dumping TONS of rain on us this week.

This post is mostly just for our family memories.  Most of you have no idea what my neighborhood looks like, so you don't understand the flooding, but it is crazy!

This is an area of our neighborhood that we were just walking through on Saturday mornings during our family walk.  It is all underwater right now. I am in shock!


This is a photo of the fire station.  The school is to the right, I cut it out of the picture..duh!  I was under pressure taking quick photos.  People probably thought I was Nuts!  But it is all under water...wild.






I dumped 5 inches out of our rain gauge. And it was over flowing, so there is no telling how much it has really rained.  AND there is more rain coming our way!  Wow!  I wanted to do some running around since both kids are in school, but I'm afraid some of the roads may close.  So, I am sticking around here today.  Watching it rain, and rain and rain.  I'm thankful for the rain, but don't want to get washed away :)

Crazy! My Hubby's Aunt and Uncle live in Arlington, and his Aunt just posted pics on FB of all of the flooding there.

WOW! I've heard that there has been a lot of rain on the coast...but that's crazy! I hope it dries up soon. It's been rainy here the last day or so, but nothing like that! Praying that the rain goes away!
