He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
Well, our snow has come and gone . . . again. The only snowflakes here are the ones I drew above. Two days ago the temperatures were between 65 -67 degrees and 15 inches of snow melted. That combined with several inches of rain, and we are dealing with flooding - in January!
Our street was flooded the other night, but thanks to the city working quickly, it was back to normal yesterday morning. And our home has stayed dry. I know many other areas have not been so fortunate. Many streets are still closed and at least one has even collapsed. One family lost two children when their vehicle was swept away by the current on a flooded road - 7 ft of water!
Driving around and seeing the damage has made me think of how much worse it has been for families in past catastrophies when flood waters have swept away homes in our country and . It is something I cannot even fathom. How blessed I am to have my family safe around me.
