Send an Ark Please

We may need one soon if this rain doesn't stop. This storm has decided to just stall out for the last day or so and has been just churning away and dumping rain. Last night and today was actually the worst weather we've had so far in our area. Quite windy(right now we have steady 30mph winds and gusts up over 40) and a ton of rain today. It's ironic. They closed the schools Tuesday and Wednesday when the weather really wasn't that bad and sent them back today.

Please pray this storm gets a kick in the butt and starts to move. The coastal areas can't take much more of this wind and rain. Some areas have gotten about 30 inches of rain. And the beaches have been eroded terribly.

And to make matters worse, Ferdy went out this morning to turn on the pool pump and drain off several more inches of water and the pump died. Oh man... I sure hope it comes back to life. Thank goodness they build pool decks to slope slightly away from the house. The overflowing water is draining off towards the back and side of the enclosure safely into the yard instead of the house.

The frogs are happy campers though. I am sitting here listening to them loadly croak over the baby monitor.
