Water, water everywhere

We're floating in water down here in Kentucky, after getting more than 8 inches of rain over the weekend. This picture is the road down to the Valley View Ferry, which J. usually takes everyday to work. He'll be taking the long way round for a while.

Thankfully, our house is on high ground.  When we went to the grocery store, we drove along Tates Creek Road (the same road in the picture above, though a ways from that section).  The creek was transformed into a muddy monster snarling at the banks.  J. estimated that the creek was not 6 inches from flooding the road and we wondered if we would have to take another route to get home. 

While being bombarded by yet another downpour, J. said, "The weather is confused. It thinks we've gone hiking."

Good grief. I haven't been out and about since the rains. Had heard that Richmond and Madison county were hit harder than Fayette county was. Yikes on the road.

Hmm, I wonder if the road over the route 68 bridge to Harrodsburg is equally damaged. Would guess that the houses along the riverside are losses.

Oh dear. Glad you are safe!

Very best,
