As I write this post on Saturday morning we are once again under imminent severe flash flood warning. That sounds a bit worse than it actually is. Although our backyard is indeed currently one large pond. My cute rainboots are truly getting a workout.
It would be so much worse if Mr. Decor hadn't spent two weeks installing French drains and grading the yard to channel the water away from the house. #mrdecorrocks
We are a family of Boy/Girl Scouts and have a well stocked pantry, bottled water, numerous flashlights, candles, matches and keep our cars gassed up to at least a half a tank at all times should we need to evacuate at a moment's notice.
With the thunderstorms also comes tornadoes. We have one prime interior closet that also has water, flashlights and pillows at the ready. I have made both children do a tornado drill.
In addition, our family watched this video on what to do if your car begins flooding.
You have just 30 seconds to save your life.
The good news is that there is a weeklong reprieve forecasted. Ever the blogger I have been working on several major home improvements in preparation of participating in my dear friend Marty's Summer Home Tours 2015.
I have been unable to photograph the completed rooms in Storybook Cottage due to the dark and gloomy conditions but hopefully, it will now happen.
Tomorrow I will share a few sneak peeks of the completed laundry room.
Thank you for your prayers,
"There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain." Isaiah 4:6
