Flooding in Green Bay
Green Bay, Wisconsin
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.

@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.

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.
