This was the scene from my back deck on Saturday. Our house is on the 11th fairway of Crooked Oaks and it looks more like a lake than a golf course. Our turtle, Bella, anxiously waits for the water to rise high enough to allow her to venture out into the world. Fortunately, the water never got that high. But there were places on the island that were unsafe for cars, people and pets. Hope all of you stayed safe during our Thousand Year Rainfall Event! My husband and I conveniently decided to come down with a horrible head cold late last week, so we spent the weekend indoors, vegging out and getting better. I try to remember that no matter how bad a situation may be, you can always find a bright side. For us, it was catching up on things we never seem to have the time for. We cleaned out some closets and kitchen cabinets and crossed a few things off the "honey-do" list. The two inches of water that accumulated in our garage will give us the opportunity to do some cleaning up and sorting through things once the water subsides.
There haven't been many genealogy posts here for the last week or so, but I look forward to catching up very soon. Hope all of you have stayed safe over the last few days and maybe even found time to do some work on your family history research!
One of the brightest things to come out of the last week was that Linda Mecchi became a grandmother and added another twig to her family tree!
Keep dry and stay safe.
