THIS. The photo below illustrates what we dealt with yesterday with Mother Nature's wicked winter encore. Compared to the snowstorm in mid-February (which brought frigid temps and power outages), this one brought flood waters - much worse conditions. The river that runs parallel to our home, just across the street, was at its highest since 2003, just under 28'. Flood stage is 30'. Note the sidewalk and boat dock pylons and the difference in the water levels.
All of these photos certainly put things into perspective as to what's important and how one's life can turn on a dime. I am thankful we were unscathed, but so many others weren't. Please keep the folks affected, both in our area and surrounding, in your thoughts.
