and More to Come
I should have known with this sunset last Tuesday that a front was moving in.
And move in, it did! The yellow sky on Saturday morning was an omen of things to come.
The early morning severe storms passed us on the west, but this shelf cloud dumped a lot of rain.
We managed to make our Saturday errands in town before the serious rain moved in. Rain, hail, lightning, wind -- you name it, we had it! It was so bad that I was up at 3 a.m. on Sunday, unable to sleep. In the end, we had about 5 inches of rain over two days. The tip of our dock was under water for most of Sunday.
I know it's hard to see, but the debris shows it was up to the third post. Thankfully, the house is much higher and we were in no danger of flooding, but I do appreciate those of you who expressed concern.
On the other hand, our previous community was not so lucky. You may have seen a couple of people interviewed on The Weather Channel whose homes were flooded again by the Little Harpeth River in Brentwood, TN. While we lived up the hill from the river, I was blocked from getting home in the 2010 flood because the river was over the only street into the subdivision.
More rain coming tomorrow. Stay tuned.
