it is getting really scarey. The river is already about 43.5 and is expected to get to at least 48.5 and possibly 50. If it gets to 50 that will be at the top of our seawall and there will be a mandatory evacuation. In all my 56 years I have never seen it this high, the highest I have seen it is 42.5. I have started getting all my pictures, good jewelry and anything else I can thing of that I wouldn't want to lose, so I can put them in the back of my truck or in the attic. I usually don't get bothered by the river, but it's getting a little scarey.

I've been praying for everyone in the areas of tornados and floods. This is all so terrible. I've been looking at your picture and asking God to protect you and all your loved ones. Be brave and take care of yourself. God bless you.
