What a way to end a day!

What should have been an uneventful twenty minute ride home today took me one hour and 45 minutes. Why? We had three inches of rain in two hours. On the drive home, it kept getting darker, and darker, and then the sheets of rain came, then I encountered hail, a lot of street flooding, and the McDonald sign broken in half laying across the street. I was re-directed at three different locations due to trees blocking the road. More than once, I thought the car would stall out going through high water.

I made it home at last! I cant remember another day where I have been this happy to get home and in a hot bath, or more grateful to myself for having cooked Salisbury steaks yesterday for our dinner tonight. When I was finished in the bath, the veggies and rice were finished on the stove.

Now we can relax and look at the water in the backyard: (I know you cant tell due to my limited photography skills, but the dark shadows at the tree line is standing water - a lot of water)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes...if you count my 50 pounds of pregnancy weight. I've lost an additional 27 pounds below my prepregnancy weight since January. It is all because of God!! I've tried for years on my own, and I am a diabetic counselor and pharmacist with the "knowledge" to know what to do, but it was God and First Place that put the "know how" into action. I still fall...even today I gave in to chocolate, chips, AND ice cream...not a good day, but with God's help and a little working out...I'll be okay. I've been through rain storms like that before...they can be exhausting. Glad you made it home. I like your blog and your scripture choices. Looking forward to reading more...nice to meet you.

Oh, it is so difficult to drive in such heavy rain conditions. We haven't had much rain yet this Spring, but we are in New England so the storms are coming. Glad you got home safe and sound. Karen

Thank you for visiting my blog. Yes, walking makes such a difference. Tonight it was very windy, but I did it! :)

It has been a very wet year here too! But, I guess it is better than the alternative...LOL!☺
