Just Maybe We Might Start Drying Out

Except for a few sprinkles this am we have finally gone through the day without rain. Yeaa! The ground is so saturated Sandy’s brother says they probably wont mow again until sometime next week. We had breakfast again at Arnold’s with her brother. He was having some of his weed eaters come to his property to do some trimming of underbrush, tree limbs and general clean up. They did a pretty good job and will start stretching the fence wire to the fence posts they put in this spring.

We needed to go into Longview for supplies. On our way in we saw every creek, stream and river to be way out of their boundaries. Lake O’ the Pines was the fullest we’ve ever seen it. Sandy’s sister called yesterday evening and advised the local news channel showed a feature of the flooding at Canton. We go here every month to sale our purse inserts. She said they showed several of the Pavilions with three to four feet of water rushing through a lot of them.

My sister surprised us last night by calling. She has finally moved to a regular room and will be there for rest of the week and then go to  rehab for probably two weeks. We continue to lift her up in prayer for a complete recovery.

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers.
