The operative word here in the Midwest has been rain. Storm clouds have frustrated my attempts at photography and moistened our basement, but if that’s all they do to us we’ll be lucky. The mighty Ohio is starting to creep inland. Flood wall closures are being shut and dams are being eyed suspiciously as the wet stuff keeps falling in sheets. Our neighborhood here in Louisville is called the Highlands, and as I explain to my young daughters, it’s because it sits on high lands. That means we’ll only be inconvenienced by the storms. But right now there are a lot of families who are are discovering what nature can do despite the best efforts of civil engineers. Say a prayer for them over the course of your busy day if you can.
