Flooding

It rained over 3.33 inches in our area yesterday. This is a photo of the cemetary where my mom, grandparents, great-grandparents and several aunts and uncles are buried!













"Roughly 300 grave sites at the Webster Rural Cemetery are now three feet underwater.
Andy Hill of the cemetery association worries that about the condition the cemetery will be in once the water recedes into the ground.
"It fills up all the graves and then you have the problem of lawn mowers tipping over because water fills up all the graves,” he said. " WOKR


Glad my family is in the back sections...hopefully not as much flooding there.

Here is a photo of the road way that I crossed over last night on my way home from work. This happened later in the evening.

















Wow, that would have been one way to get a new car!

But today the sun is back out and hopefully the waters around the area are drying up!

Mother Nature sure has been wreaking havoc lately. I sure hope the damage at the cemetary was minimal. Any famlies needed to relocate?

I'm happy to report that things at the cemetary were "back to normal" yesterday afternoon. I drove by (yes the road is fixed too) and no signs of water surrounding the gravestones. This part of the cemetary is actually the oldest part with all the graves from the 1800's.
