What A Difference A Week Makes

Well since last Monday I, Sweet William The Scot, have had twelve hours of straight rain. 
 Then the snow came again with another eight inches and the rain had not melted all that we had before.
 Then came the negative zero temperatures!
Then two days later we hit 40 degrees.
We're having a heat wave
A tropical heat wave
The temperature's rising
It isn't surprising.
 Now you probably guessed what happened!
The Ohio Rived came out of its banks.
Road Closed!
High Water
 Road Closed!
High Water
  Road Closed!
High Water
Oh yep, you might recognize the school in the background I showed you in my post
Road Closed!
High Water
See me way off in the distance.
Pray Lee does not leave me here on a sit and stay.
Why I could get wash away with the Rising Waters.
Hope I can find a road home.
Oh that is Riverbend Music Center in the distance.
May 17 ~ Lady Antebellum with Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt will perform.
It will be cleaned up by then.
In the foreground sits Coney Island Pool filled over with the Ohio River.
Lee has had tickets at Riverbend for shows that were cancelled due to flooding.
Oh well "This too shall pass".
That idiom dates back to the 11th century so it has stood the test of time.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

    easy rider

  4. Soon we'll be hearing about flooding on the Mississippi.

  5. Oh gosh that does look wet. Please tell me you got home safely and the floods were nowhere near your residence.
    Toodle pip!

  6. OMD Sw. Wm.... hope you have your water wings outta storage...
    The snow came down Hard and Fast and then melted away just the same...
    OMD stay HIGH and DRY buddy...

  7. Sweet William we are having a heat wave also but with out the river flooding. Spring melt has come fast and hard in your area. Stay safe and dry. I remember the post about the school as I thought is was a bad idea to build so close to the river. Frankie and Ernie hava a good point about having your water wings handy.

  8. Sounds like you're ready for Spring too. I'm in need of green grass to sink my toes in.

    Aroo to you,

  9. Oh William...We wish you could send some of that floodwater to Calfiornia...

    -Bart, Ruby and Otto

  10. At least it doesn't look like it's causing too much damage!

  11. Yikes! Let's hope for sun
    Lily & Edward

  12. it has been the oddest of winters for sure.

  13. Too much of a good thing, William. We hope this water dries up soon!

    Love ya lots
    Mitch and Molly

  14. Our newspaper made it official - Idaho has had the warmest winter on record. - how wierd that everyone else is getting bombarded with snow and cold. Keep dry and warm Sweet William
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  15. Wow.....say can we run a pipe down here to us...Oklahoma has been in a drought for three years...Oh please don't get washed away!

    Your Bestie Pals
    The Mad Scots

  16. Cuz spring is coming!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  17. Hey Sweet William!
    Wow, your river has swollen all over the place! Gosh, I hope it goes down soon. I've had crazy weather too, but way more ice/snow than there. Hopefully this will all bring lots of Spring flowers soon. :)
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Police Commish

  18. Sweet William be careful out there so you don't get swept away. We have a lot of that starting to happen here too. Our sidewalks are all puddles when we go for walks.

    Loveys Sasha

  19. Good grief! Make sure you've got your water-wings at paw, we'd hate for you to get swept up and away.
    Wally & Sammy

  20. OMD!!!! SW you guys have so much waters!!!!! You can send all of it here!!!!! We needs it bad...even though we actually got normal rain, it's been our 4th year of drought, so we are still in troubles. I wish instead of an oil pipeline, they would build a water pipeline to transfer water to where it is needed!
    Anyhu, off topic...sorry abouts that! I hopes it dries out soon and you gets to walk on nice green grass and smell the flowers bloom and hear all the spring burdies sing!!! it won't be long!
    Ruby ♥

  21. Oh my goodness! We have been hearing about your weather, but your visual description packs so much more impact! I sure hope you and Lee are staying toasty warm. We still can't get over the rising water there!

  22. crikey you've had it all weather wise,stay dry mate,xx Speedy

  23. So much water! And so much cold weather...we're ready for spring and summer! Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  24. Do you think we will get anymore snow this year??
