The Great Flood!

It’s been raining like cats and dogs here in WI for the past couple of days.  We’ve gotten enough rain in some parts of our state that dams have broke and major flooding has occured.  I think I heard this morning on the news that Lake Dalton actually made national news when the dam broke and houses actually fell into the flood water and were floating towards the Wisconsin river.  I think the final total was 7 houses were headed for the river as of news time this morning.

    I saw news footage of a huge house just cracking in to pieces and falling into the water – it was terrifying. It split down the roofline first, then slid on down in 2 fragmenting pieces. Somebody’s home sweet home, gone in seconds!

    Same here….where my oldest boys live, with their dad, in Terre Haute, they are expieriencing some of the same flooding. Their Step-mom’s work was closed as it was totally flooded, the Wal-mart still didn’t have power late Sunday. Not sure where it stands right now. I am so tired of the rain, I know we need it, but enough already.

    I saw the houses breaking apart and falling into the river. So sad. 😦
    Hope the flooding stops soon.
