Rain Rain Go Away



Rain Rain Go Away,
Come Again Another Day...

The local radio announcer is suggesting that we follow the sheriff's directives on no travel on Vernon, Crawford, or Richland Center roads tonight.
Towns are being evacuated.
Mudslides.
News reports that 75% of the roads in Richland Center are impassable due to wash outs and water across the roads.

10" of rain in 24 hours and more on the way, with no end until mid week.
Mother Nature is beautiful yet powerful. When I checked fences today and found that the flash flood last night took part of our fence that runs above the creek, I was amazed. The creek bottom was not as I recognized it from previous walks.
All equine were accounted for. Trees had toppled their roots no longer able to hold them to the hillsides...
On the home front we are okay.
I'm going to grow webbed feet.
