Yesterday morning, I snapped a few pictures of flowers still blooming at the old house.
The gardens are terribly overgrown at this point.
It's so odd that the sedum is blooming so early.
Lilly and Jester got to go to the pond.
They had a good time, despite the humidity.
As the day wore on, the humidity got worse.
As we drive home, I came across this scene, and got out of the car to take a better picture:
I was being watched:
See me in the rear view mirror?
I went another two miles, and saw this ahead of me.
I counted four little poults walking with her.
At 3:30 the senior Yoders got here, to spend the night. We had planned to meet Amber (Keith's daughter) and her sons for dinner. However, Mother Nature intervened in a huge way.
This is the juncture of four yards in our back yard.
That's where the water was headed. This is our neighbor-directly-behind us, and the blue building is his detached garage.
See the pond? All the water was headed there.
His basement and the detached building flooded, and a major cleanup is underway over there tonight.
There was also considerable flooding on the next street over, and a culvert collapsed under the street there.
Flooding is all over Leavenworth County.
Dinner out was cancelled and Amber stayed at home, safe with her boys.
Look whom I ran into this morning on the way home.
If it IS the same group (and it was the same vicinity), one poult was lost in last night's major storm.
I was sorry to see that.
I had horrid vibration in the car, but there was no getting out to get a clearer picture.
She's keeping them in the high grass, but they struggle to get through it. I'm crossing my fingers for them.
This was a common scene in our county today!
