Good morning all.

Woke up to thunder and Cory under the bed. Had .7 inch of rain so far and it is not over. This is a good day to stay home. Hope it stops before we have to go to that service tonight.

Think I will get some coffee, then play something.

Everyone have a great day.

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 10:49 AM

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink. We got 4.8 inches so far and it's still coming steadily. The flooding is incredible all over but thankfully other than an inch of water in my backyard and a couple inches in my heat vents I am okay.

be niece flooded and I trying to find a route to get to her to bring her my shop vac and more towels. I can't get there to help her.
Posted by: flutist

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 01:38 PM

2 inches so far and some in the basement. Lay down towels, spin towels, lay down towels, spin towels, ongoing. The ground is so saturated my yard is beginning to look like a lake. Anyone have an ark I can borrow?

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 01:51 PM

Eek guys, all that flooding....sorry you guys are having to deal with that.

It's a gorgeous day in AL and the doggies and I got out for a walk and a listen. Silly left leg was not happy, but we were able to get our distance by going slowly and stopping often. We stopped to talk to someone for about 10 minutes....after that stop, leg felt fine. Wish I could generate a computer printout to tell me what's going on.

I have decided today must be partly Monday, so off to cook some books. puppy

Howdy ever body. wave

I was back from Dallas by 1:00 and then had to take that Mom person grocery shopping which was done by.....just now, so my day was pretty much shot before it had a chance. rolleyes

Ana I am so jealous. We got an inch and a tenth of rain. I can cry more than that feeling sorry about it. cry lol

It was very over cast and windy and cold all the way to big D and back, and then it cleared off while we were in little d. (Durant) grin

Now I'm debating whether to take Baby to the creek, or stay in and chill. think

Not sure, but I think I know which way Baby would vote. puppy

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 06:08 PM

Yankee, so glad you stopped in! I hope you keep improving so you can get back to gaming and posting. hearts

Joe, we have so much water it's crazy! You can have some for sure. We had almost 6 inches and my daughter had 9. My dogs are wading in the yard and don't know where to go potty. lol

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 07:13 PM

Ana sorry about all the rain but by the time it gets here it is white and still coming down in full force. lol Is it Christmas yet????

Joe you can have any or all of this white stuff if you want. lol Creek!!!!!! Glad you made it to the "Big D" and home safely!

L4l must be the way you are walking. duh Maybe??? I walk many different ways all in one walk do to the conditions of my walking surface. lol

Yankee good to see you post a little. happydance Hope and pray that it keeps on getting better!! Every little bit helps!

Night Haroula sleep well.

Space have a lovely and relaxing evening!! Did you ever get another puppy dog???

Bets hope the rain stops for ya. That don't sound like fun spinning and soaking though. HUGS tonight.

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 07:19 PM

Nan, I think this rain will get us out of the drought we were in. lol My woods are not walk able, the creek and lake in there are way beyond the banks. I don't want snow though. You can keep it. It's 62 here so that is at least something positive.

I forgot to mention earlier that I am back in the corner again. yay
Posted by: looney4labs

Re: Thursday's - 04/18/13 07:20 PM

Nan, I Think that perhaps my walking shoes are too stiff. There used to be a store in town that specialized in walking/running. If they are still open, hubby and I will go in there on Saturday and see if I can get a pair that is a little more flexible to see if that helps. Little by little, we will get it figured out.

You need to bring Sassy and come on down. We had 80's today. Hubby is on his way home...early for him this week. puppy

Ana we are now beyond the record snowfall for the month of April and it is still coming down. lol We really would be flooded if it were rain cause the ground is still froze and it would have no where to go. Stay dry and may the corner treat you well.

L4l sounds like a plan!!! Hope that it works. Night.

Midge......row, row, row your boat gentlely down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream!!

On that note.....night everybody sleep well and pleasant dreams!!
