I was watching the weather tonight and they say a powerful storm is headed our way tonight and into the weekend.
I am not happy about a “BIG” storm hitting us especially if it has lots of rain in it. I know we need the rain but in moderation is good. When we get too much rain at one time it scares me.
I have lots of trees around my house and a creek that flows along peacefully most of the time. But when it rains hard and for too long, the water begins to flow down off the mountain behind me and all the mud and silt comes with it and make my creek a ‘rushing river’. It gets so high, I sometimes am afraid the water will take my house with it. And I only live about 60 miles from the Pacific Ocean and I keep seeing myself in this house floating down and hitting the ocean waves and then on to who knows where…scary thought isn’t it?
But the creek isn’t my only concern. Its all the trees that might be uprooted by that water that gets so powerful and fall onto my house. I know I am probably scaring myself, but I do worry alot when it rains a lot.
The picture posted is of my creek when it gets brown, ugly and powerful. It becomes that river of no return for me…and I use this same water for my drinking and all else I do in the house. Even with filters, it does not clean up the water. And if I take a bath, which I sometimes like to do with bubbles up to my neck…this water is brown and I think, am I even getting clean or dirtier…lol.
Xing fingers this storm is not too bad and the rain comes in spurts rather than a downpour all at once.
