Just in case you were wondering what the river behind our house looked like. We had over 4 inches of rain in about two hours.
I panicked for about an hour after I got home. Jer was busy at work and couldn't answer, and I just wanted to take the boys and Elke and run for the hills. Thankfully my Dad answered and told me to stay put. Such a smart man. :)
So we watched and we waited. I never really worried about the river coming near the house. I was more worried about washouts and lightning and the flickering of electricity. That was one heck of a storm.
By morning, the river was up higher than when we fell asleep, but we could see by the marks on the trees that it had already receded about a foot.
So Mother Nature, I think we are ready for some sun!
