Hello Ike.

So. I guess we really are in a flood zone. I'm not sure how many inches of rain we have gotten in the last couple days, but it was enough for the river in our condo complex to breach onto the grass, street and parking lot. At about 7:30pm, Mark ventured outside to see what the rest of the property looked like and it's pretty wet out there! The water is thigh-deep in some spots.
Since we really don't have a 'ground floor', no one is in immediate danger of their unit being flooded, but our cars are. So, there were several police officers knocking on doors, telling the other co-owners to move their vehicles...and we promptly did so. With Kevin's help, Mark moved our cars over to his house about a 1/2 mile away. I'm not sure if it's going to get any worse before it gets better, but we may be homebound for a little bit. I guess we will see in the morning. At least the ducks are loving it.
Other than our little flood situation, our weekend has been quiet and enjoyable. Saturday we visited Aunty K and Troy. While the guys watched some college football, I helped Kristin set up a blog. Since they are going to have a destination wedding, it'll be a great way for her to keep us updated...especially with details like flights and accommodations. Today we ran some not-so-fun errands (grocery shopping, blech!) and watched the Lions stink it up on the football field. And, to satisfy Morgan's need to put everything in her mouth, we bought her some teething toys. She still seems to prefer our fingers!
I'm so not ready for it to be Monday again. Ready or not, here it comes.


  1. WOW! What a surprise. Does it look any better today? Love the picture of Morgan.

  2. I can't believe it looks like that!
    Our basement flooded a bit, but nothing here looked that bad. Hope you can get it out soon.
