Rain, rain go away.....

Mother nature has given the state of Minnesota quite a spanking the past week or so. You either have webbed feet or wrinkled toes. The amount of rain that has hit different parts of the state is absolutely overwhelming. The southeastern section received about 17 inches of rain in less than 24 hours. Peoples homes have been swept straight off their foundations and others completely lost due to flash flooding. People watched campers and trailers at a campground float past them and today they reported picnic tables caught in the tops of trees after the water receded. People have at least 6 inches of mud & sludge covering the floors in what's left of their homes. At last report 7 people lost their lives to the flooding and the collapse of roadways. Minnesota seems to be experiencing such devastating losses on different levels since August 1st and the bridge collapse. I know that other parts of the country are experiencing extreme weather conditions as well, I just hope that the storms lose their strength and soon! Until next time.....I hope you and your families are safe and dry.
