Forces of nature can be frightening, especially when the power of them creeps up to one's front door. Dig if you will the view out our front window showing the fancy car place across the street be-sludged in mud and rain. When Papa M went to retrieve Rosebud from my parents, he found that the rain was trying to swallow the roads. One of the regional lakes actually busted out of itself and drained yesterday. Yeeshh. Too much.
