What the heck is going on?? Here in Virginia we just had an EARTHQUAKE, A HURRICANE, and now FLOODS! I’m now officially over all these weather emergencies. Life in Mc Lean feels like some sort of drama TV reality show. The endless downpour has forced all public schools to be closed today, bridges are collapsing and roads are closed all over the place. This was my driveway yesterday… Yes, you’re seeing it right…A LAKE!
Unfortunately I don’t have a boat…
This is what it looked like when I needed to go pick Luke up at the school bus…IMPOSSBLE! The rain kept pouring and pouring and pouring, so our entire street was closed down due to heavy flooding….
Sorry for blurry Iphone images. This is normally a small creek in the woods.
Now the Potomac River….
This created a roaring waterfall down from the top of the hill behind the house to the beginning of the driveway.
Luke got off the school bus at a friend’s house instead, and I waited two hours before getting in the car to go and get him 5 minutes away.
Chaos everywhere! Every road I tried was closed, it took me one hour to go 5 minutes!!
Yep, you get the picture!
Finally with Luke in the car it took us…. guess how long to get home??
We we’re rerouted in all kinds of directions.
To Tyson’s corner and back again….
….emergency vehicles everywhere…..
But Thank God we had Bubba The Rescue dog in his red rain coat in our vehicle…
…because then we at least knew we were safe!
Did you get affected by the endless rain yesterday??
Hope you have a fun & dry weekend!
