PostSubject: Local flooding   Fri Apr 19, 2013 4:48 pm

EEK! So. . . .this is the road that I would usually be taking this evening...(Amy, this is the road we took to go to Main street.):





They've evacuated the southern area of north Ionia - and it's looking like the river is going to crest so high that it's going to engulf the one bridge that we have that allows access between the north and south sections of Ionia. (It's divided by a river.) The other bridge is down right now, having repairs done on it.

Then, we have a LOT of roads that are closed due to flooding, or washouts...Here are a few pics:


















YIKES! It isn't expected to get here to my house, but they're evacuating people two blocks away. Thank the Lord, the rain has stopped at least for now!

WOW! For some reason I find that third picture the most unsettling... the way the water is just creeping in from the woods.

Whoa! I have never seen flooding like that and hope not to.

Lisa, I hope you, Amy and Rhonda are safe.






Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

That's quite near the section of road that I'd mentioned to you in PM - the one I'd been worried about driving through. When I went there, though, the water had receded, thankfully!

Thank you, Alice & Krissy! I should be safe where I live - and I'm being very careful where I drive. The roads have given way in MANY areas of town. Some of "my" kids from church, though, live in the area that has been evacuated, and I worry about them. I hope the flooding recedes soon...Even so, the recovery is going to take quite some time. I've never seen so many roads so badly damaged! Thank you again for your concern!

Yes it is rather strange but we are thankful for a Slow Melt we had a lot more snow at least 2 feet, The people close to the River are how ever getting ready for a flood Most of the years we don't have snow at this time just water grinsmiley

Yikes, Lisa. Your town is flooded. We had flood watch, the other day. But, your town turn into a river. Praying for your family to stay safe.

Hopefully it won't flood. Must still be pretty cold where you are Jacob.

We don't have problems with flooding where I am, but when it rains a lot our backyard looks more like a wading pool.

This was the duchess of cambridges take on how she felt when William proposed during their official engagement interview with ITN reporter Tom Bradby. There was a real giggle at the end. Cute.
