Yesterday our creek broke free of every last bit of accumulated ice and gorged itself on rain and melting snow; it's now full-bodied and rambunctious but still staying within its banks. So far.
Tonight, very strong winds from the north are forecast for sudden return of the cold, meeting with the warm, windy storms pushed up from southern storms. That's a recipe for trouble.
It should take our minds off the dismal topics of the news.
R.A.T. (Rose Around Town) hopes you're nowhere near the hard-hit areas of last night and today. And if you are, may God keep you safe.
