Rain and Floods

For the last few weeks it has not stopped raining. The roads I usually drive to work were flooded and had to be closed, I had to drive the long way around. My Landy has a leak above the door, so I needed a supply of towels to catch the flow of water.

I was one of the lucky ones, as in town many homes were flooded, and people lost everything they had. The Red Cross and the Vincent De Paul have been asking for blankets, towels, sheets etc.. as well as donations. With Christmas coming closer it will be a difficult time for many.

I have not been to visit many blogs recently but hopefully over the holiday season I will have more time. I have just updated my Christmastime Magic blog also.

Big hugs,

That's so sad to hear of that horrible weather and all the people it has affected. Hope everyone will still feel some Christmas joy!

Oh my, that sounds not so nice! What a terrible rain! We had lots of rain too, but now it's beautiful winter weather. Cold, but nice!
Take care!
