April Showers

Historic levels of rain in 24 hours

 One block north of my house
the road is a lake.
As are the properties on either side.

 That red car isn't going anywhere

 South a block and around a corner,
the pond in the park has overtaken the roadway.
That white car isn't going anywhere, either.

Sloshy swinging in the park.

Makes me thankful the house I fell in love with 26 years ago happens to be at the top of a hill.  I wish I could say it was strategic planning, but I was not that savvy of a home buyer.

My heart goes out to all who are bailing out basements and dealing with water damage.


  1. Oh, much water. I am so glad that you are safe, but it's heartbreaking to think what others are having to contend with.

  2. Last year's drought has now swung the other way ... water levels are high up here too, though we don't have any flooding.


Thank you!
