Sunday Morning Sunshine

I woke up this morning earlier than I wanted, to a beautiful Spring day. The sun is shining and the sky is very blue. A definite change from yesterday, that was rainy and gray. I am hoping to catch up on reading some new posts on myLot this afternoon and evening, after I return from my Christian meeting. I may go out to lunch with some friends and family, though we haven’t made any definite plans yet. I’ve been thinking about the flood victims this week in several different areas. I just can’t imagine what they are dealing with right now. I have some friends who live in Texas and I’m hoping that they are safe. The weather patterns are calling for even more rain in those areas, so my prayers go out to all of those who are affected by these floods. Two floods that I experienced: One was in West Virginia about 30 years ago. Our house was not affected but the highway to get to our house was underwater and then here in Virginia, about 20 years ago, we lived out in the country and again our house wasn’t affected but the road to our house was washed away where a creek ran. And then there was a HUGE flood on the James River that was devastating to many homes and families who lived near the river. After the flood waters subsided, we went to look at the area and we could see mud on the limbs of trees, 15 feet high. It was incredible. Have you ever experienced flooding? Picture by Pixabay

@JohnRoberts Reminds me of that song. "It never rains in California. Man, it pours." I'm thinking you NEED some rain out there, right now. I was reading about how some places in California are pumping water out of the aquifers. That water is not replaceable. And when its gone, it will be gone forever. Then, you will have to watch out for sink holes like they are plagued with in Florida.

Here is a video link that you might enjoy watching about the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and the relief work that followed.
Survivors describe what happened when Super Typhoon Haiyan struck. Jehovah’s Witnesses organized in advance and mobilized immediate disaster relief efforts.

It seems like the rains are being experienced in most other places,like here in my country just yesterday,we had very heavy downpour for the entire night and for the better part of the day.This has been reported to be the case in most parts of the country but I've not heard of any flooding being experienced.
