Hell and High Water

It’s been a while again. Another broken promise; seems like I’ve made way too many of those lately.

We had a massive flood here in South Dakota in the middle of May; I had about a foot of water in my basement, lost a ton of clothes and a truckload of old papers. Journals. The scrapbook my mom kept for me when I was little. I cried a lot.

We were lucky, though; a number of houses in the area were condemned, and I know a couple of families that are still living in hotels.

A couple of pictures:


Like I said, we were luckier than many. Chaos reigned, though, and the blog took a backseat.

Hope to catch up soon.

    i am sorry that happened, sorry for the loss of things that are dear to you, but it’s good to know that you’re okay.

    All the best to you and yours, and i hope things will get back to normal in a timely, healing manner.

    As I said, it could have been much, much worse; I was whining a little in a coffee shop one day during the whole mess, and one of the waiters there is from Mississippi. He put it all into perspective very succinctly when he told me about his family back home. He said, “Well, everything should be back to normal in a few weeks. My family still doesn’t have a place to live after the hurricanes down there.”

    It’s understandable that you couldn’t take time to blog with that going on. There has been a lot of flooding all over the place this year. All part of our changing weather – I dread to think what’s in store. As you say though, it could have been worse, even though I’m sure it’s been a nightmare as it is!

    Hang in there. I’m sorry especially about your scrapbook. I’m wishing you well.
