Prolonged Rainfall Event This Weekend

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



From the National Weather Service:

..FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON...
... A PROLONGED RAINFALL EVENT IS EXPECTED FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. SOME LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN IS POSSIBLE FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY... FOLLOWED BY A BETTER CHANCE OF HEAVY RAIN ON SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY...

And our forecast, according to Weather Underground for Hopkinsville, KY

Friday: Rain showers, 80% chance of precipitation

Saturday: Chance of thunderstorms, 90% chance of precipitation

Sunday: Chance of thunderstorms, 70% chance of precipitation

At least the temperatures are supposed to stay above freezing. Farther north, freezing rain and snow is expected.

The ground here is so muddy already that I hate to think what it will be like after three days of rain. I would love to give this rain to any drought-stricken area.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
