The News story on our local station began: “Families left stranded by flash flooding in Washington”… In the wake of last night's major storm, more than a hundred people were either unable to reach their homes or could not get out from them. Nobody had to be evacuated, but roadways became rivers. One of the major areas of destruction was on our road, just down a ways from our Wee Hobbit House. Our town road crew had been in the process of putting in a new culvert. Now their careful work has been washed away and they must start again.
Needless to say Day Three was spent on outdoor chores: emptying planters, weeding the gardens before the next deluge possibly arriving tonight,
and getting the lane beside our driveway passable once more using a hoe, rake, shovel and wheelbarrow. Hey, we got our exercise!
Needless to say I was not sorting through memorabilia in my little study.
Tonight, I do hope to make a little progress, however.
