It rained from Wednesday evening throughout the night and into Thursday. We awoke to a phone call very early Thursday, and ended up helping friends clear out their basement. We made two trips to our friends' house, and both were rather scary. I was able to snap some smartphone pictures along the way, and at our friends' house. Here they are, and if you think the Flood in Noah's time couldn't have happened, keep in mind this was only a day's worth of rain.
The view from our friends' deck.
Their front yard.
Driving home--passing a footbridge at the golf course.
Along the road home--that's coming from a retention pond!
Crossing the bridge by our house; this was impassable 30 minutes later.
Back at our friends' home; the water had crested and was rising no more--alleluia!!
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life,
in the second month,
on the seventeenth day of the month,
on the same day
all the fountains of the great deep burst open,
and the floodgates of the sky were opened.
Genesis 7:11 NASB
