Just had a very heavy downpour, but luckily for this area, the forecast was wrong. We haven't had near as much rain as predicted, looks like most is over NWA and into MO. The river are still dangerous. They still haven't found the missing person whose camp was overtaken by the river on Wednesday. I have read reports of people seeing others putting kayaks in at Ponca yesterday, one report even said they had a small child with them.

We are just staying in and watching tv. If the weather is okay later, probably head to the Lowgap cafe.

we seem to have more than you and there is nothing on TV according to hubby. Maybe it is because he wants to watch the horse racing channel but we will be watching from 5pm on I am sure. I think he is sleeping in front of the TV right now; don't blame him, not much sleep last night. We don't expect much sleep tonight either and we have to be greeters at church tomorrow for the early service. Oh well, guess I will just pour another glass of wine and start an early dinnner: night, night time will be early tonight. This will be the 4th of 5 nights we have lived through storms that keep us up 1/2 the night cause we have a little doggy that hates the storms, even wind and rain.

Well we got hit hard this afternoon, Newton and Boone county is having significant flooding. The rivers (Buffalo and Little Buffalo) are hitting the bottom of the bridges in certain areas like Jasper and Boxley. Water was crossing Hwy 7 in a few areas although it's gone down on the highway quickly. Many gravel roads in Newton Co. are washing out in spots. We were able to get in and out of our gravel/dirt road but it was pretty rough going. A 4x4 truck is necessary to do so. Waterfalls in places where there should be none. There is more to come which is going to aggravate the situation. All this water is heading down to the rivers which are already very swollen.

Oh, there are some breaks, but not many. I guess I have learned, "be careful what you ask for".
This is the quote "for every 1 degree of climate change, the atmosphere will absorb 18% more moisture." that means more floods in the future.

Al Roker once said on TWC.........." the NE will experience many snowfalls this winter but they will be dropping small amounts due to climate change"


In less than 3 days after shooting his mouth off, he started his program with .........."record snowfalls cripple the NE "

If we humans actually have the ability to change the weather, please proceed with eliminating tornadoes.

I just dumped 3.05 out of rain gauge and still raining.
Creek by my porch is roaring over the rocks and going over the road out front.
Low water bridges are under water.


I will not make it to church as it is hard to figure out which roads have dips and are under water in order to get to hwy.

we were able to get to church. In fact we were greeters. I am guessing we had about 1/2 the normal attendence. We usually have 200 or more, not today.
