An extra day at home

I woke up to the phone ringing - school closed yet again, this time due to flooding. I thought I would still try to go to work since it is a pretty critical time there for me, but I was thwarted. My first clue was the creek at the bottom of the hill. Here's how it usually looks:

Here's how it looks today.

All the little roadside creeks are raging.

And the road disappeared under the river.

So, I'll be working from home today if my children let me. They are getting a bit of cabin fever; they've been out of school since the middle of the day on Thursday and I have limited their TV time so their brains don't turn to mush. Thank goodness we finished the basement. Right now, they are down there playing sock hockey with swimming noodles as hockey sticks. Socks sure do slide well on Pergo floors!

Wow look at that water! I live in a high spot. Just looked at Woods Creek as I crossed it.

Yikes! Glad to hear that creek is at the bottom of the hill not beside your house! Weather this year is crazy all over the world isn't it? Sock hockey sounds like a blast, what a great idea.

whats wrong with a little mush? My almost 3yr old grand daughter is a Dora the Explored junkie. She won't hardly speak to anyone at church but will speak spanish with one of the older ladies. We do a combined singing where we do a verse in english then one in spanish and she can sing both. Pretty amazing.
Keep your feet dry. I want to see what your are working on fabric wise. cw

I see the difference...only the first creek picture had little boys whooping it up in the water. ;) I work in admissions also so good luck catching up when you get back to the office.
