Rain often means electrical storms and we have had those several times during these 4 days, including during the night, startling us to the point of making us jump up in our bed!
Many areas of the city and outlying areas have been flooded and this has affected the lives of some members of our area churches. We have heard reports of water being waist-deep in their homes so we know that alot of damage has been done.
However, the farmers are happy...and so are the plants in our yard. The rain seems to act like green paint for the grass and a strong cup of coffee for the other plants as they lift their little perky heads from the depths of despair.
