This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

WW: More Flood Pics

These photos were taken on Friday.
Then it rained Saturday and Sunday.
The snow is gone, but still lots of water
and mud.
click photos to enlarge.



Emma looking at the flood out back



Standing at my back fence.
There is usually no water here at all.



Looking in the other direction from my back fence.



The park behind our house from another angle.
(down the street)
Again, usually no water here at all.




Another view of the same.


There is a walking path under this bridge.


The walking path.


Another River


Same - In the other direction.

You have lots of water! I went to my parent's for Easter, and there are several creeks that are flooding and going over roadways. Luckily, no one's house is really close and it's mostly in pasture land.

Has it been warming up yet? It's been in the 70's the last couple days. I am lovin' it!

Yikes! That is not gonna sneak its way up to your joint, is it?

*Just Jen* said...

Oh no! I hope the sun comes out for a few days to dry that up!! *HUGZ*

Caitlin said...

That's horrible! Stop, rain, stop!!
What are they doing to counteract it?

That is a lot of water. What is up with the weather these days? We've been having rain off and on which supposedly right about now, we're supposed to have really hot weather. I hope the sun comes out soon to dry up all that water. My boys would've love to play in that water even if it is freezing cold.

How are you holding up? From the photos, Emma looks like she wants to go wade in the water. LOL

Lana said...

If it does rain, will the water reach you? I sure hope not!! I have a couple family members who live in the Clandaboye/Petersfield area. I haven't heard anything this year, but a couple years ago a cousin's house was flooded. Crappy. :(

I hope you all are Ok!
I know my sister is being threatened right now with flooding. She has sandbags all around her house.

Why Do We Even Have That Lever? said...

I can't believe that little creek. its crazy! The Red better stay in it's banks. It's about 2 feet from taking over St. Vital Park right now! :-P

They are calling this the third worst year of flooding in the past 150 I think... We are only a couple of feet short of surpassing 1997's "Flood of the Century"!

Stay dry! (pass that one on to Emma!)

Ali said...

Oooh, not fun! Come on nice weather!

April said...

Wow...that is a lot of water and muck! Sure hope the sun stays out a good long while so that everything can dry up!

That IS a lot of water. I hope it lets up and dries out quickly for you so you won't worry. :)

Sarah C. said...

Hope the water stays far from your yard & house and that it all dries up soon. Love the first picture - Emma is so cute. :)

Nicole said...

Oh how scary, I hope everything turns out ok!

Furious Mom said...

Wow that is alot of water...is it because of heavy snow fall?

AnnaMarie said...

Eeeep! Is the weather predicted to dry out soon? It must be very unnerving to have the flooding so close to your house.

Emma is so cute!

Grand Pooba said...

Holy crap that's a lot of water where there should be no water!

Ann said...

That is incredible! What an eerie sight.
