Evacuation Update

Looks like things will ultimately be OK, at least with my parents' house .... things at the dam seem to have stabilized somewhat, though I think my sister got to host them for another night. All sorts of pictures and such are on the ever-cited Post. Just tonight I finally found this graphic, which shows the evacuation areas. It's probably best that I didn't see it before, because I was just assuming they were worried about water from Lake Needwood, which is a decent distance away. I totally never even considered "Oh, the water will flow into Rock Creek, and the overflowing creek will flood Mom & Dad."

For the record .... the house in which I grew up, in which my parents still live (as well as some of my stuff!) is that first little red squiggle (closest to the dam) that looks kinda like a telephone.

Yeah .... prolly good I didn't see that earlier .....

Wow, Steph, how scary! I'll keep your family in my prayers this weekend.

There are times when thinking small is the best way to manage, to believe that it is really only a creek (as we usually think of them) that is causing a little bit (so you think) of trouble. Otherwise it's too intimidating to even tackle.

I'm glad your parents and all those memories are still okay! Although maybe investing in a waterproof box for the photos might be a good idea too.
