"River levels are slowly falling. Flood stage is 32 feet, and Saturday the river is at 47.5. That's 15 feet above flood stage. River levels are starting to fall, indicating an earlier than predicted crest. According to the County Sheriff's Office, there are no major concerns with the levee system there either. The Corps say they will continue to monitor the site." Sunday it is expected to be 47.7 feet which is below the 50 feet levee level. So if it goes as expected, Diana's house and town should be safe. There may be some minor flooding due to seepage but they shouldn't have the catastrophic flooding that was forecasted earlier. I pray it is so!
Diana has been so calm throughout all this. I think I've been more worried than she has! Tony and I were talking about it and he reminded me that we have been through blizzards (wow, it's really snowing!), ice storms (listen to those trees breaking!), tornados (look over there, there's another one!), tropical storms (the wind sure is blowing and it's actually raining!) and we remained calm through those. But it's different when it's my loved ones and I'm so far away! He just laughed at me. I'm sure you understand! I can breathe a sigh of relief and thank God for His protection!
Since there was nothing I could do for Diana, (except pray, which I did!), Tony and I went to a huge flea market today. We haven't been in a long time so it was good to walk around and see what all they had. I had my eye out for a couple of tins to keep my quilting safety pins in, some hankies, and maybe an old quilt to add to my collection, and I was successful! I got exactly what I went for!
