April Showers...

in May...
and boy did we get them yesterday.
Torrents of rain!!
I was in my father's hospital room watching
it pour down.
{by the way he is doing so much better
thank you so much for your prayers!}
He is on the fourth floor and it
really was a beautiful sight looking over the
city at night from high above...but the rain!
In our area we got around 3 inches and we
almost needed a boat to get home!!
We turned down our road and there
were four places where it was flooded over
the road in the 3/4 mile from the main road to
our house. We have never seen that in the
28 years that we have lived here.
Sharing a chuckle for the day:
Whether the weather be fair,
whether the weather be hot,
we'll weather the weather
whatever the weather,
whether we like it or not!

You are so funny, sweet friend. I was going to say before I read your write ... ummm, Sandi, it's MAY!!!

And, I say ... clouds part for a sunny day, Sandi wants to go out & play.

Glad that Dad is doing much better. It is so scary for sure.

Hugs of love, Marydon
