Wordless Wednesday


I know that it's supposed to be wordless, but I wanted to explain the picture.
It's been raining and sleeting today. The snow is melted and the bayou of the Grand River near us is flooding. The bayou usually only occupies the back part of this shot, but as you can see, it's overflowed the banks!

Hope no residences were flooded or folks hurt because of the bayou jumping its banks! It looks so cold and dreary too!

I was going to wash the car today, but what's the point - we got more snow, it's melting and the salt and slush are horrible. A friend lost a car wheel trying to negotiate the potholes. We're so tired of winter this year, and yet we don't want to be malcontents and complainers.

Learning patience!

Yes, it certainly has overflowed. It is scary seeing how much damage flooding can do. I hope no homes are in danger there.

I saw on the news last night that your area of the country was getting hit with lots of moisture again...like you need more. The photo, tho flooded and not good...it's still a pretty photo!!

It was a pleasure having you visit with me yesterday.
My Wednesday blog is:

Your company is always a special treat Mari.

That pictures tells quite a story about how flooding literally takes over an area. Here's hoping for sunshine soon!

Mari, sorry to hear about the flooding. Hope all is well! We are still getting the rain here but that's Oregon for you!

The force of water is very powerful, hope that it doesn't reach any homes. Very good picture!

Bayou... strange word for me... that sounds like a mystery.
Nice photo...

We have a lot of that happening here right now too, only we don't have a bayou...ours is the Shasta Dam releasing the water into the Sacramento River. Amazing how much power water has, and yet God could ripple it just by touching it with his finger. I don't think we have even a little understanding of his power!

Hope no one is in the way of the bayou and get´s flooded. I bet it´s unavoidable, when you have so much snow, as you did last winter!

Brooke said...

i bet you're ready for spring!

In a strange sort of way I find this picture comforting. It almost looks the way I feel to day as I tried to explain on my blog. It's not foggy, but eerie and calming. Does that make sense?

Melissa said...

Wow, that doesn't look good at all! We've felt the effects of the storm over here: an electrical pole at work caught fire yesterday, the transformer exploded and we lost all power and our phone lines!

Tricia said...

Uh oh! I hope it doesn't get any deeper... =0! Stay dry!

Shelly said...

Good thing that house isn't there anymore and it is now a place where people can go fishing.

I was noticing that when I came through too.

When I looked at the picture my first thought was, "Are those buffalo in the water?" Then I read that is was the river near you. I hope this is not too close to you.
