Sometimes it's almost as much fun to live mid-continent . . . storm winds within one mph (74) of hurricane force yesterday and as of this morning, 10 inches of rain over about 30 hours, some of which is streaming across my basement floor just now.
Are we having fun yet?
Oh, and did I mention that the lightning bolt that made me jump at 5:30 this morning blew out electrical service and parts of my neighbors wall, on the inside of their house, about 60 feet from where I was standing.  

Let's see now, where did I put that cave . . .

no place is safe to live it seems
Mother Nature is powerful and cruel sometimes

keeping you, and everyone in storm weather, in my prayers and heart

It's everywhere, it's everywhere...

I awoke to lightning and thunder
and some blessedly needed rain...
only the southern part of the states
seems to have to hog ALL the rain...

they COULD share, y'know!

Glad you're OK, Kraw!

be safe....MN is having a lot of bad storms and rain right now, flooding will surely follow....they actually closed schools today for flash flooding in the lower valley areas....in the 14 years I have been here, I have never seen that happen with rain....praying that all who endures bad weather will survive! hugssss

I don’t want the world to see me
cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken I just want you to know who I am

That was a close one, Kraw! However, it still is unfortunate that you a have basement where a river runs through it!

Gaia certainly has been on a rampage!

Keep safe and batten down the hatch!

I am very glad to hear that you are safe "e".

And as I was telling someone recently, anywhere you go, Mother Nature will find you.

Lucky for us that you ducked, sweets.

KRAW, that was way too close! Hope things settle down for you, and I'll turn on an extra light for you and the neighbors.
