Don’t Drown, Turn Around~Flood 2016!

Flooded Golden Meadows Subdivision

I thought April showers brought May flowers! I guess the month of March got confused with Punxsutawney Phil not seeing his shadow and sprung Spring and its rain a bit early and a lot heavy (say that three times in a row.)

It’s been a tumultuous month thus far with massive amounts of rain falling on the South. Last week, flooding immediately began in certain areas of Louisiana and many areas in Northern Louisiana with more rain currently in the forecast.”Don’t Drown, Turn Around” was the local catchphrase used on most of the news stations, there’s always a catchphrase when disaster strikes, always!

Float along with me; as we look through pictures of Mother Nature’s wrath on the South. Please continue to pray for the flood victims and the 11,000 homes that were affected by flood damage.
