This last weekend was crazy busy. We’ve had heavy showers and mild storms hitting our area off and on most of the week, but this weekend we got hit hard. Several towns and communities surrounding us have been heavily flooded due to the torrential rains. A friend of the family showed their rain gauge measured more than seven (7) inches of rain in one day. Some of the flooding was so bad that one lane of one of the roads literally washed away. While 7 inches isn’t anywhere near what Queensland Australia got recently (they got almost a foot and a half or so,) the power of the flow was significant, and our county has been declared a disaster area.
Saturday morning, before the heavy stuff hit, I gave a presentation on Permaculture to a local community group. It went well, and if you are interested in following that side of my life on a regular basis, check out my non-tech hobby page: Jack of all Hobbies.
Sunday morning at midnight, I headed to Little Rock. This was right in the middle of the flooding mess. My car stalled several times on my way in to work. I was at work until almost noon, and I came home and crashed (sleep.)
Due to the crazy experiences we’ve had with the weather, the work schedule, and the presentation I gave, I’m cancelling today’s normal content to just provide an update on life. Crazy busy.
Thanks again for reading, and hopefully I can get back on track quickly.
