Almost isn’t Real

I found myself driving down Rt. 322 at exactly the wrong time yesterday and I went into water observing the person ahead of me successfully traversing the flooded road. The problem is I drive a mini cooper and it is about the smallest car on the road so I thank God I made it without shorting out the electrical systems of my car and then I faced a deeper flood and observed the people driving ahead of me and suddenly didn’t feel as though driving through that section of road was the smartest choice.

So I backed up and let the person behind me make her own choices. She went on ahead and stalled halfway through the flooded portion of road. I sat there long enough to see the firefighters start to rescue the poor woman who was trapped in her car and gingerly started to make a 180 degree turn. I say gingerly because, if you don’t know the road, there was a cliff to the right and the raging flooded Brandywine River to the right and a flooded section of road I had to traverse once again. 

The other side of Harmony Hill was flooded and the road was jammed back to Skelp Level Road so I took Shadyside which was mostly uphill but the rain was blinding and the road was flooded in spite of its elevation.

I ended up at Jessica and Mike’s house.

Glad almost isn’t real.

Glad for a daughter that took my unexpected visit in stride.

I had fun watching Jeopardy with them.

Am very glad for the sunshine and warm dry weather today.

Saying a little prayer for everyone whose real wasn’t an almost and hope today brings rest and healing.
