just a little update…

Thank you, all of you, for your kind, supportive words during this past week of flood and disaster recovery. I am trying to keep my head on straight, so that i can help maintain sanity here at home, try to stay in touch with friends and family who have lost everything and need help, and still keep the little guy entertained.

If you recall, this past winter/spring i posted photos of ice that had backed up along the river nearest our home. I am posting photos of that same bridge that were taken today, and am trying to get them side by side with the ones taken during the ice jams. Never ever disrespect the power of water. It will win, every time.

Well…HELLO! these aren’t from the same angle, but they are the same bridge. I thought that the ice was high. See the logs within the structure on the left? wow. holy water. the river is still a little higher than normal, but VERY low compared with during the storm.IMG_0449

Looking upstream, the river looked like this….but NOW, it looks like this… IMG_0451

Again, thank you all for your support. Stay tuned for updated photo albums online, too.


Be well,



  1. Take care Gene, and I am glad you checked in. You are in our prayers!

  2. Still praying for you....

  3. Gosh that's a bit mad! I hope you and yours are all well. Take care.
