The water is so weird here. I guess everywhere is different. In Louisiana, if it rained a lot, it would flood and take days to go down. I don’t remember it ever flooding in Kentucky. In our part of Texas, it rarely rained but every now and then, it would rain and in a couple of days, we might get 5″ of rain. There were a couple of places in town that would flood almost every time there was a high rain but for the most part, there was no flooding.
We don’t go out othat often (though more than I’d like) so I’m sure we miss it sometimes. I already mentioned that Chad said the road to our house was closed Saturday evening. Sunday morning, Vince said “Let’s drive down and look at it”. The water was gone with no evidence that it had been over the road except for some damage to the road and the barricades pulled to the side of the road. Lately, MDOT has been leaving the barricades on the side of the road because they’re apparently having to block that road so often.
After I got home from keeping that hilarious little boy (who I thought was 2 but he informed me he’s now 3), Vince wanted to run to town so we did.
None of this water is usually here. There’s a bridge ahead (that little rise in the road). I’ve never seen water in these fields, though a couple of times I’ve seen evidence that water had been there. We were in town maybe an hour. On the way home, I asked Vince if we needed to take a different route home in case the road was closed. From where we were, it wouldn’t be too far out of our way to come up a different road but Vince said he doubted the water was rising because it hadn’t rained since close to daylight.
We barely made it going this way. They were putting the barricades up but let us go through. We had to cross over into the other lane to get around the water after we crossed the bridge. If it doesn’t rain again, in a few hours the barricades will be down but it’s supposed to rain more tonight. MDOT is spending a lot of time putting up and removing barricades because I doubt this is the only place around here they’re having to do this.
