Weird, how a flood can empty a lake while turning dry areas into a lake. Meanwhile, we are out of water because we wash our hands too much.  ???

Wait a second, I just reread your post, you don't have running water currently?  :patch:

Thanks for posting those. Despite my SO's daughter living there, we had no idea of the severity of the floods. Yikes!

My pleasure, EssBee.  :thumleft:

I'm certain she's fine.  Iirc, she's in or near Livonia.  The most severe flooding is quite aways north of her near the Saginaw Bay and the rivers that feed it.

Yeah, they were ok, thanks. Yes, they're in Livonia. Her husband got involved with the help on that weekend.

Take care.

Those lakeside homes are now mud flats side homes.

After paying my 6 month auto and motorcycle insurance premiums 
yesterday, I had to calm my nerves with some rural gravel road riding.  I found this peaceful place with beans growing as far as my eyes could see!

I fully understand what you're saying, it is astounding the devastation Mother Nature can dish out.

Those people affected by the flooding won't be back to normal for quite some time.

Those lakeside homes are now mud flats side homes.

I've found out since, the lake was manmade, so hopefully, once the dams are rebuilt, they'll get their lake back.

Hello Hennie, hope all is well with you and yours.  I read your email, haven't had time to respond yet, though I'm glad you're keeping busy, eh.



As far as my recent 60 day stay in the WD Penitentiary, I honestly haven't a clue.  All I recall is pulling WB's chain a little when he was looking for a TV.  I'm a high end TV connoisseur so I offered him some advice with a few digs here and there, but it was all in good fun. 

I inquired about the lengthy ban to Kamanya, but he must be on his period or something, he failed to respond.   :ricky:

Anyway, I'm happy to be back on ship with the rest of yous even if free speech is frowned upon!

The good news is I'm feeling the best I've felt in years due to some R/X my neurologist prescribed.  I'm able to, for the first time in too many years to count, getting a restful nights sleep and my headaches are much more rare and less intense since my car accident late last year.  I feel refreshed with all kinds of energy when I rise in the mornings instead of sometimes feeling like going back to bed.
