Ike Strikes

Sunday morning as we headed to church, this is what greeted us just about a mile from home: we skip church?  Nah, we go home, get the camera, shoot some photos, and find another way there.  

In just a few hours it rained about 5 inches!  This little creek rose about 10+ feet to cover the bridge and completely flood the area.  But about four hours later, it was back to normal -- with the exception of the mud and silt everywhere.  
I love the weather in the Midwest; it keeps life interesting.

CRAZY WEATHER!! I'm glad you are okay. Hope your home wasn't flooded. It's fun to see how you guys are doing!!

Um, yeah. I think that's a good enough reason to get to stay home from church. Wish that would have been my road. I'd so have been home in bed with a good book.

So I pretty behind but nice pics. I would've gone back home for the camera too. Glad you and your hubby are ok. I love looking at your cute blog. I feel like we're so close with you in MO and me in WI. Didn't I read your sister lives in WI? When Scot and I make a trip to Navuoo I'll have to give you a call.
