Sunday morning we woke to rain and more rain. The dogs were let out and towel dried. We busied ourselves with wedding projects, reading, tracking the storm, crossword puzzles and blogging. We lost power for about 3 hours and early in the day Dad ran to town for some provisions. He reported the streams in town were raging.
Katie and Brian decided to leave in the evening since Brian had to work and Katie had a dentist appointment in the morning. We got a call a few minutes later to drive down to the neighborhood entrance because the road was washed out and they weren’t going anywhere!
Katie and Brian got up early Monday morning and faced many road closures and detours. They couldn’t get over the damage, hay bails in the trees, homes and businesses full of water including a restaurant Katie, Brian, Mom and Dad had eaten at last week. After they left Derek and I took Griffin on a hike to be out of the house!
We haven’t been able to get to the farm where Katie and Brian will be married in less than 2 weeks because the roads are closed. Keep your fingers crossed it will dry out, we are all trying to think good things. Katie said, “I don’t want to see it.” Keep your fingers crossed!
