Thanks to NOAA, and our weather scanner and our weather radio (boy, are we prepared - or what?) we have determined that we are in for another evening of dodging the weather, hopefully. We are located in about the middle of the little box extending from the Nebraska border. Just got back from picking up some electric fencing supplies for the sweet corn...but I told the cashier, that depending on tonight's storm, we may be bringing it all back for a refund. Hopefully not. There is supposed to be baseball sized hail and 70 mph winds, flash flooding...don't know where the water will go, the ground is so saturated.
There is an old lake that was dried up in Smith Center, and it is now overflowing the spillway/dam.
This is a friend's husband looking over the road washout, here in the county. Guess a farmer came upon it, there was a haybale in the way, he got out of his truck to check it out and good thing, cause he would have gone right in the wash. Whew.
Speaking of farmers, we also get to play farmers for a couple of days with the chickens and the horse across the road. So, yes, we are prepping for tonight's "event", could start by sundown, don't know, we are to be under a "flash flood" warning until...get this...Saturday. Hmmm.
I CAN swim if I have to.
