“Hey, Noah!”

‘Hey, Noah!’

That’s what the sign read in front of the church. What made it even more clear was the pontoon boat tied off to the church entrance ramp. I chuckled as I turned into the lot. The new minister had a unique sense of humor, but this… after the severe flooding…

Just because, I opened the weather radar on my phone and zoomed out a little. The map was nearly a solid green with a smattering of yellows, and a few darker red and magenta cells on the horizon. Maybe the pastor had some intel we didn’t…

Authors Note: This past month has seen record flooding in our state of Kentucky. I live well north of that area, but the devastation is very real there. And there is still rain in the forecast. Our ground is already saturated… flooding continues to be a very real threat.

    1. If you look back, you could argue that it’s cyclic… Sad, though, that people have forgotten the true meaning of the rainbow. God promised to Never flood the entire globe at one time… he didn’t say anything about small parts… Have a great week, Lain!


  1. Well, now YOU had ME laughing in the aisle! Although the flooding has been tragic and not funny at all, I love the way you handled this prompt.

    Here in my corner of PA, we are thankful for the little bit of rain we got this week. Need more.

    1. You’re more than welcome to take some of ours. In August we usually get 1-3 inches for the month… this year it was 9.3. The ground is so saturated that even after a full day of sun and high temps the ground is still like stepping on a wet sponge… bout like my living room carpet. Still waiting for Maintenance to fix drain that isn’t draining.

    1. If the world gives you rain… jump in the puddles… there’s not much else to do. I’ve been doing my nature journaling via photos this year. Not as much fun.


  2. Reminds me of the time when extreme rain followed a severe drought. From the pulpit the minister asked, “Would the person who is still praying for rain please stop.” Well told.

  3. Great story. It’s true that flooding is crazy in Kentucky. My parents used to live in the mountains in Eastern Kentucky and it would flood quite badly there, although not as bad as this past year. They should have put the whole church on pontoons maybe.

    1. Now, that would be a sight to see… LOL! My Daddy’s family is from Southeast KY down near where the flooding is. Got a “safe and well’ message from distant cousins still living there.
