Flooding in Green Bay

May 19, 2019 8:53am CST
We've had more than half an inch of rain since last night. The rivers are flooded and this person isn't going to church. There are reports of flooding along the Bay of Green Bay, the Fox, and East Rivers. They are also talking about another river flooding along the way to church. The flood watch goes until midnight on Monday. Which means, I won't be going swimming tomorrow either. I'm staying home and staying safe. So far, from what I've seen, there aren't any cancellations, which means my church is probably having service this morning. I've been keeping an eye on everything. However, I don't trust the rivers, especially since they are rising and we're getting another half to three-quarters of an inch of rain yet today. Green Bay is also hosting the Cellcom Marathon today. They canceled the full marathon, though the half marathon is taking place. You won't find me out there without the guarantee I won't get trapped by flood waters. With that said, I watched a couple of church programs this morning so it at least feels like Sunday, and I got some teaching in me. It's not supposed to get above 60 F if it even gets that high. Yesterday, we were supposed to reach 54 F and it only reached 49 F. So, this rain is also keeping things cool with gusty winds. I've been telling the gal on the reception desk at the Y that this year will be known as the year of the flood. We've had a lot of rain, and it will continue this week, though the latest forecast shows less rain than previously forecasted, which is good. We don't need it. It does feel strange not going to church. But I'd rather be safe. It's also quite dark for 9 AM. Still daylight, but it makes everything inside seem like I should have the lights on. How are things with you? Rain, no rain, sun and nice weather? Thanks for reading.

I hear ya. We've had a lot of rain, but not like last night and today. Looking outside, it doesn't look bad, but everything is wet. For now, it's stopped raining, but it will start up again soon.

It is about 52 F, cloudy and some rain on and off. Not the best Sunday. I wish it was a bit warmer.

No rain yet today, but had a lot yesterday. The ground has not had a chance to dry up, so everything is muddy and very soggy.

no rain Sunday. It was hot. I went back to church after two weeks of not going. But my knee was hurting me so I didn't play my clarinet.

@marlina It was a beautiful day yesterday. Today, not so much. It started out nice, but the clouds are rolling in. The sun will be completely blotted out in a couple of hours and then more rain.

@ShifaLk I like Jentzen Franklin and I saw Jack Graham. They were both very good. Both talked about children - discipline and not discouraging or exasperating them. Two different viewpoints on the same subject.

Other than the sinkholes at LSU in the parking lot by athletics, we are holding our own here. We have this disturbance from the Gulf of Mexico moving in now and we got a good bit of rain today. Tomorrow we have flash flood warnings with rain expected all day and more rain on Friday. For the weekend we have just normal afternoon thunderstorms, but we really do not need the rain. They delayed opening the Morganza Spillway until this coming Sunday due to the river not rising as fast as they predicted, so that is good news. However, this new rain will change all of that. Stay home and stay safe.

There's a lot of that going around. Here, Davenport is flooded. I think it's still flooded, anyway. It's been raining every day and it's starting to get again, too.

When I saw the weather map a couple of days ago showing the flooding in the local states, it looked like Iowa was fully flooded.

Take care and God help them where you are and bring much more safer and milder weather too and keep things be able to work, thank you, amen. So far it's a sunny day on Oahu where I am. Going shopping. Right now hunting for an item I saw on sale but now can't find it. Well be safe and dry.
