Flooded IN

This whole concept of getting flooded IN, is new for us. We know some people that have lived in the Medina area their whole life. There is a low water crossing on their driveway, so there are times when they are flooded IN, too. She says when that happens, you just sit on the porch and watch the world go by. We were very fortunate that we continued to have power all weekend. We have other friends out north of town that had the power go out on Saturday afternoon and it stayed out until some time on Sunday afternoon. The Andersons and the Fishers just left this morning- as it was starting to rain again. They wanted to make a run for it-- in case the roads closed again. There is still water on Wharton's Dock road, but it is passible. I learned a few valuable things this weekend. Like...I need to organize my spare bedding better, keep a better supply of fresh batteries on hand, always keep prepared food in the freezer to serve on short notice, and my stash of new toothbrushes and small bathroom items really was handy. Oh..and keep a supply of diapers in all sizes.
Most of the time we really don't need all of this house, but when we is nice! I am almost done cleaning, vacuuming, laundry, and mopping. Tomorrow...make all of the beds again ;)
