Dear Family and Friends,
We drove from Columbus to Atlanta just over a week ago. The morning we left Columbus rain was in the forecast. Chuck and I left extra early just in case we got caught in a torrential rain storm. This has been known to happen in Georgia. Rain so thick and heavy that you cannot see the car in front of you or even the road, for that matter.
Luckily we had a nice ride to the airport in Atlanta without a drop of rain.
However, we got out of Georgia at the right time. I have been seeing pictures on Facebook of flooded creeks and the Chattahoochee river in Columbus.
Just to let all my friends in Columbus know...we aren't exactly in drought conditions here.
Since we have been back in Cuenca (and who knows how long before we arrived) it has been raining every day. Some days more than others...but every single day.
This is really no surprise since we are in the rainy season here.
I just wanted to share pictures of the river that is in front of our condo. It is very full, lots of white water, rumbling and noisy. So far, where we are, the water is still inside the river banks. However, another river in town is out of it's banks.
Traditionally we can watch people washing clothes in the river out our front window. No so much this week. Too dangerous.
Here is a picture of Chuck checking out the river.
Another picture, taken from the bridge.
I hope in you folks in Columbus are safe. I've seen some incredible pictures from there.
