whew...that storm that blew in yesterday was a wild one and we had over six inches of rain dumped on the city in two hours. this translated to flashflooding throughout the city, including flooding the city lot where most of the police cars are kept until the next shift. not good. an immense chinese firedrill will occur until more cars are purchased so they can keep bad guys off the street. cars were swept away, mud covered the streets and two possible sink holes opened. boy am i glad that i live in a house on the hill.
yesterday, i traveled down seven bridges road (you know the eagles song, right?). it indeed has seven bridges (more actually) and is home to some beautiful rural countryside. along the way i found...
and .... gorgeous trees
there was so much more - old churches, graveyards, cows, more wildflowers. i could have spend an entire afternoon but the skies opened up and poured rain. i will definitely travel this road again.
did you dry out any today? how's the week going? tomorrow i'm so excited. i get to sit with the nieces for three days while mommy and daddy take a sea cruise. i will definitely be stealing tons of sugar.
