Here’s the 1am update before I finally go to bed and when I actually have cell service…
We saw our water(aka water/sewage) IN the house go up to over 8.5 inches.
I’ve never been so grateful when it started going down and I started measuring hourly with a ruler and marking the window with the kids so I didn’t feel crazy!!
Our neighborhood is still flooded like really flooded and I can’t open my doors yet.
No rain just mild (strong) winds ..
I keep thinking this is a dream and it hasn’t sunk in yet.
The kids are doing OK it was a day of lots of emotions when we could not save all the things and we all had to watch items float by that we forgot/didn’t have time to move and everyone had various levels of devastated about..
My favorite was when.. one of the kids said before bed.. ya know I didn’t have a proper meal today.. I really laughed and was delighted to know how they know what a “good meal” is..
Also to be fair yesterday was Evie’s birthday and it’s acceptable to eat cake the next day for breakfast because well.. it’s like a donut! Ha!
Keep praying friends.. I know reality will set in and it really is a mess here!
More later if my cell phone holds out!
My girls especially can’t wait for the water to clear so first they can check on all the “older” neighbors because they need the most help..
Meanwhile I’m deep breathing and choosing to delight in these lovely humans that I think/hope it’s true I may have helped create this beautifulness!
