Flood pics and Chatting!

Chat Away! happy Wednesday. the rain and flooding in Pensacola, FL (where I live) was no joke. lots of roads and bridges have been washed out. i am ok, and luckily no flooding in my home and the power stayed on! here are some of the pics from the event...


Rachael Reid Finch sent in this photo of a flooded room at PSC. Here are other areas that have been damaged ->
inside one the buildings on the college campus i work at.

one of the roads/bridges...40 foot drop! no one was hurt in this one thankfully, empty parked cars.

ok, here is the chat for the week:
Everyday Ruralty

1. Would you rather drive or be driven?
--i would rather drive short distances like to work or the shopping mall. i would rather be driven for road trips. i am good company and i stay up!

2. If you had your choice of a shiny new BMW with no conveniences inside, or an older model Ford or Chevy with everything one could want for comfort and convenience inside, which would you choose?
--the comfort and convenience Ford or Chevy and it may be better with gas too!

3. Do you eat many vegetables?
--yes! love them. i have a veggie with each meal. i even sneak it in with breakfast :)

4. If you could blink your eyes and make a change to your body, face, hair, or nails, what would you change?
--i would get rid of some more of my tummy and give myself wavy shoulder length hair :) i like most everything else.

5. Please finish this sentence. "Goody! Someone just gave me two hundred dollars and I must spend it doing something enjoyable today. I'm going to___________________."
--I am going to save it? pay off my month of school loans? ok...fine since i have to spend it, i guess i will fill up my gas tank and go shopping :)

hope you all are happy, safe, and dry :)



  1. Wow, the flooding pictures, show how powerful the storms have been. We had tornadoes all around us. But no damage here.

    1. Banker Chick, glad you are all ok too! these storms and tornadoes have been a mess!

  2. Oh, wow... So glad you and all of your loved ones are safe! Looks like the flooding was really bad there!
    Thanks for sharing with us at our 20 wishes link up! We'd love to invite you to write a list of 20 wishes you want to accomplish the rest of this year and come back and share it with us at Truly Lovely!

    1. Kassi, thanks! i will have to think of my 20 and do that next time.

  3. I enjoyed your answers today. Those pictures are amazing. I'm glad nobody was hurt when that road departed! So many people had problems because of the weather lately. Some, very severe. It makes me glad I only have a bit of water in my basement.

    1. Patrice, yes grateful it was not worse and that people i know are ok. water is terrible when it comes up like it has.
