And really, the rain could go away and not come back for a while. We’re sitting in the middle of flood watches and flood warnings and it’s no fun. A friend’s townhouse has been attacked by mud from her backyard – literally. They’re going to have to replace floors, cabinets, sheet rock. All from mud. All from this rain.
This was my view on my way home this evening. Quality sucks, but you get the idea. It’s dark, dreary, blurry…that’s how it feels after days of rain.
And we don’t even have the worst of it! Atlanta has been hit hard. I’m following so many Atlanta residents on Twitter, and it seems that everyone is tweeting the same thing – lots of rain. Lots of cancellations. Lots of problems due to water.
I’m thankful that we’re safe in our house. I’m annoyed that our power is flickering, thus taking our internet away with every flicker. But at least we’re dry and safe and don’t have any damage to speak of. A lot of people around me can’t say the same thing. I feel guilty for complaining about this. Earlier today, I saw a man crossing the road I took the photo of with a suitcase. I hope and pray the homeless people of Asheville are able to find a nice dry, warm place to sleep tonight. This mess isn’t fun.
And, rain? Please go away for a while.
