Rain, Rain, STOP ALREADY!!!
It's the third day straight of constant downpours in our area. I just heard the reporter on the nightly news say we've had 20 inches since Sunday. Wow! AK's school was canceled for two days, as well as her dance class and church Wednesday night. I guess there is a lot of flooding and several road closings. Conditions are supposed to get worse as all the rain continues to flow into the sewage drains and into the streams and lakes. It's truly unbelievable how much it has rained. My friend and I were supposed to do an 8-mile run this morning to prepare for the half marathon we're running in a couple weeks. We kept putting it off hour by hour waiting for the rain to stop. And it never. ever. stopped. Walls of rain were pouring off our house all day. It's 8:15 p.m. now and I still hear rain hitting our windows. Crazy. Anyway... here's hoping for a little sunshine tomorrow... and for all this rain to move to Kentucky, where my dad says it is badly needed!
