Through the rain...

Wednesday, March 09, 2016

Today was challenging... At 4am a bad thunderstorm came through and it was still storming when it was time to get up. We left for work at 6:30am and found one end of our road barricaded, and the other end of our road (pictured) flooded. So back to home we went...after a bit we tried again and still found the road impassible. I called my job and told them I couldn't make it, and my daughter did as well. Around 8:30 I found our neighbor's Great Dane laying under our front porch steps. She had evidently been there all night. I went to see if she was OK and realized she couldn't get up. We quickly realized that her leg was swollen 2x it's normal size, so we picked up her owner's vehicle and got her to the vet. With roads looking better, we tried again to get me to work. We went 3 different ways and still couldn't get to town. So I got an extra day off of work. My pedometer battery was running low, so I didn't get to wear it, which is OK because I barely got any exercise. I only got 6 cups of water in too. Just a very off day :/ praying I get to go back to work tomorrow.

    They actually declared a state of emergency in my town and did mandatory evacuations in town. We were lucky. The county was actually declared a disaster area.
