we dodge the water bullet

Couple of Emergency Alerts about flooding and possible flooding, make for nervous sleep.  I’m sure others got slammed, but this go-round we got nothing in the basement; in fact we didn’t get water near the house.  Now around the house is another story, as you can see from these pictures.  The river is flowing so swiftly it makes a loud whooshing noise; so far no bloated cows.IMG_4740 IMG_4734IMG_4735 IMG_4738 IMG_4741
