We’re Flooding!

In lieu of Femme Friday, we wanted to tell you guys that we are under flood watch here in Milwaukee.  We’re dry at Chez Cat, but those north of us aren’t so lucky.  Our local news stations are reporting water on the east and north sides of the city.  Even our airport is closed, and we’re expecting more rain today and through the night!

Last night when mama was at work they called a “condition black”, so she had to get patients away from the windows and close all the doors.  Two of mama’s coworkers were two hours late because of the roads being closed.  We read that a rain gauge in Shorewood is saying that we received 11.6 inches of rain.  That’s a lot of water!  It’s possible it might happen again tonight.

I hope all of you aren’t too badly affected!

So we’re just lying low here, and so far we are dry and safe.  Mama has the A/C on (of course) so the windows are closed.  Those of you in our area, stay safe and we hope you aren’t flooded out!

    We have been keeping a watch on your area and cannot believe how much rain you are getting! We got a little last night and need it desperately. We seem to be stuck in the dry part between you and south of Chicago. Be very careful and feel free to send some of it down our way. Stay dry and safe!

    We have been watching too, and can’t believe how bad it got up there – we aren’t that far and it was pretty nice here. When I was driving in it was weird because to the left were nasty clouds and to the right clear skies (the edge of the clouds were just barely above us). We hope that things don’t get bad again today and that you don’t have any flooding (and that your AC stays on!)

    Our mom read about all the flooding in your area. We hope you all stay safe and dry. We are getting bad storms right now, too.
