Tuesday as my friend and I left work, we looked forward to getting home early. But that was not to be. We should have been home by 4:30, but instead at 4:30 we were at the half way point because of a truck fire and rubber neckers. We did not get through that until 5pm.
Still enough time to get the girls before the daycare closes at 6pm. And luckily the big bad storm passed by us. We could see the dark clouds.
Then we get to a major intersection about 5 minutes from my house. It is backed up. So we take an alternate route that ends up taking to long for me to get my car from my friends and get to the daycare before it closes. So my friend agrees to go straight to the daycare.
On the way we cross over 10 areas of the road that are covered with water. Rushing water. The storm that we missed did not miss the route we were taking. The rain had to have dumped buckets and since it has been raining so much it had no where to go. We saw some duplexes centimeters from flooding. Mini rivers coming off the side of the road.
We arrived at the daycare at 5:55. Whew! With the drive back to my friends house, then to Sonic, we were home at 6:30.
Rain is predicted for the next 7 days. Where will it go?
