We’ve had so much rain last month and this month, with a week of rain ahead of us. If you look at the photo, beyond the big tree in the center is a road that runs along the side of our property. Needless to say, it’s flooded.
We have another road in the front of the house that is much higher and thankfully, doesn’t flood. If it ever does, I’ll have several feet of water in my house.
We’re close to the Red River which hasn’t finished reaching it’s ‘high’ level…yet.
My daughter and her hubby have a hunting camp on a lake, the threat of water is very real right now.
I’ve seen the pictures of homes and cars floating by and know that some people have lost everything. Worse still is the lives lost.
A daughter calls her father, begging for help…and it’s the last he’s heard from her.
So I say a prayer that everyone be safe…
Have a family emergency plan. Google the internet and see what different people are doing. Make copies of important papers and store them in a cloud or email them to yourself where you can retrieve them if necessary. There are a lot of things you can do before tragedy strikes. Hopefully, you’ll never need to use your emergency plan, but if something happens, you’ll be so glad that you’ve prepared for the worse.
In our area there is flooding, hurricanes, and tornadoes, just to mention a few. Then there are house fires, burgularies, and other mayhem that can interfer with your daily life.
As I tell my husband whenever he leaves the house, “Be safe.”
