All Washed Up..

Anybody listening to the weather news for the past few days knows that our little neck of the woods is in deep trouble with flooding. Rivers, streams and sloughs are already out of their banks in some areas.

The National Guard as well as college students are filling sandbags to help stop the onslaught of water. We just got word that our little hamlet has lost all of its lift stations which means all sewers will be backed up into the basements. UGH!! All this and snow is predicted for today and tomorrow. Mother Nature sure does have a sense of humor!!

All the doom and gloom aside, I have been honored by Couture de Papier with this wonderful blog award. Totally humbled...thank you for allowing me to be in such artful and creative company. Her blog is beautiful, full of eye candy and well written...I encourage all to take a look. And now I must pass this on to some of you wonderful people out there that I enjoy...a hard pick since there are so many but here goes and trust no particular order ;D

I was complaining about our water - it is NOTHING compared to what you all are dealing with! I figure people pay big money for water front property and I get it tax free in the Spring - but, it doesn't flood my basement or back up my sewer -I hope you are fairing well.

Thank you so much for the bloggy award, it is lovely. I will post it soon :)

Your bloggy friend, Jules Maegan said…
