I spent Wednesday morning at Lifestyle Fitness (the warehouse) lifting weights that for me was so heavy that I needed Jonathan to spot me or otherwise I would have dropped them on my face, not sure how pretty that would have been…
So after this intense workout I tried to blog on Wednesday nigh but I was so tired I decided to finish the post in the morning. Well, that did not happen as planned as my friend called me in the 5.30 in the morning asking me to come and get her as she thought her house was about to flood. I jumped in the car and our street had already started to flood and went to get them. When we got back to my house another flash flood came poring down and the water in my backyard kept on coming closer and closer up the hill.
As soon as the rain stopped we went outside and this point we were unable to leave the area. We could not get out and for those who tried ended up with very expensive car repairs… When we came up to the park that was no longer a field, it looked much more like Lake Michigan.
We were very lucky and managed to keep the water out of our house but I feel so sorry for my neighbors who I saw pumping water out of their houses, tearing carpet out of their basements as sewage was coming up through their sinks and for some who ended up having to evacuate altogether! Today the water is receding, the kids are back to school and life starts to get back to normal.
