What is up with the weather lately! I think Mother Nature is mad at us! Our weather has been just crazy lately with tornadoes hitting so many areas and now there is massive flooding! It is so sad to see all the damage and lives torn apart by the weather related issues. We have personally been very lucky to not be directly effected by the flooding in our area, but so many are!
We drove down to the flood site over the weekend to see how bad it's going to be. They are opening the dams from the Missouri River and that will flood entire towns just south of us and close roads, close business and force people out of their homes. They will have to relocate, rebuild and start anew! I can't even imagine going through all of this.
The only good thing is that they were given enough notice to hopefully get out what they can and get things moved to higher, drier ground. Many businesses are trying to put dirt and sandbags around their buildings to help deter the water when it comes. Several of the gas stations even had their pumps removed and had already shut down.
I was glad to see some people are keeping their sense of humor. One hotel had a sign that read "Lake front property for sale" on one side and "Gone Fishing" on the other. And the picture above is the entrance to a subdivision. They're keeping their fox safe :)
It really does make me think of what is important. What I would grab first I can't even wrap my head around starting over!
Sending safe and happy thoughts to all my readers!
