Yesterday our road was under water in an area. I am beyond traumatized about water so I stayed home with the kids from church. That was a first! Since we live in an area that is plagued with sinkholes, I was not driving through any water that I could not see the road under it! It's one thing to get myself out of a vehicle, it's another to get the kids out of their car seats and out safely! We've bought the sticks that will break the car windows from the inside in case of something like that happening.
Well today it's worse! Our nurse could barely drive her small car in this morning. since rain is expected for 3 more days....I called Emergency Management. We were actually thinking we might need to take Selah to a hotel to be safe. EM was very helpful. Originally I had called them per our nursing agency when we came home with Selah. Basically they told us they had no place for our family due to all the needs. So they told us to be prepared to hunker down. With our new house, that is what we prepared for. BUT the nurses can't get in and out, especially the ones with smaller cars. So the EM guy suggested that the nurses park at our local fire station and they can be shuttled back & to if they need to be.
I love rain but....this is too much!
