Well, this is what I woke up to today. After listening all night to it pouring BUCKETS of rain...I turn on the news to find that places about 1/2 hour east of me and 1/2 hour west of me are devastated!!
I work for the County...and our EOC command center is here. In fact half of the department I work in either run the center or work in it. So that was what we lived and breathed today. This was what I saw looking out my windows today as the new vans were lined up right below all in a line.
I had the news up on my laptop all day so that I could keep up with the news reports...
...and this was a shot looking down into the lobby below where part of the EOC were taking breaks and watching the newcasts on the large TVs outside the Commissioners Chambers. We've already had 19 confirmed deaths, and who knows what the weekend will bring as they continue to search through the rubble and destruction. I spent my last hour doing Well Check calls as people all over the nation were frantically calling to check on loved ones that they couldn't reach by phone.
I had to find a little beauty in my day tho...so while the girls were at music lessons I went down to one of my favorite little picture spots and grabbed a shot or two. The sky is still filled with clouds as there is more rain to come...but lets hope there aren't any more storms.
