Planes, Tornadoes and Floods
I’ll sum up my trip by saying New York City was great, as always, but there is no place like home!
This has been a terrible spring weather-wise and not just for us at Our Little House.
On Wednesday, I encountered the storm that ended up producing those deadly tornadoes in the south.
We flew through them when they were still just severe thunderstorms while on my connection out of Atlanta. It made for a very bumpy ride and more than frazzled my nerves for over a day.
I do hope that none of our LL community suffered losses there and I am keeping everyone impacted by the storms in my thoughts.
Here at Our Little House and beyond, it feels like 2008 again with all of the rain and flooding. We had 15 inches of rain in the three days before I left for my trip and Dale said it rained constantly while I was gone, even after the weatherman said we were in for a change last week.
As of this writing, it is still dumping what is now damaging rain. Again, the weatherman promises a change to dryer weather this week.
Table Rock Lake, on our Corps system to our north, has been emptying record amounts of water through the dam, which will eventually find its way to our area and beyond.
It’s also been so cold that I haven’t yet gotten out our summer clothes. Last night, Dale and I covered up with the heavy comforter usually reserved for winter. Maybe I should have left those flannel sheets on!
Let’s hope that the weather patterns do change for the better for all of us soon.
