When it RAINS

When it RAINS, it POURS!

My in-laws house was the perfect river-front view in Marseilles, IL. On April 18, it rained and rained. A barge then crashed into the dam… By the end of the failed “rescue”, 7 barges were stuck in the dam. (To date, 1 remains) The river breeched the levy and flooded near 250 homes. Anywhere from 2-10 feet on the first levels of the homes.

The weeks to follow have been filled with emotions during the devesatation and destruction to rebuild phases. Driving through the neighborhood still strikes with awe. Some are rebuilding; others condemned or abandoned.

Feeling blessed to have our family and helping during this difficult stage of life. They are almost done with rebuilding and hope to be back home soon.

Bigfoot’s Girlfriend is back on path, broken as it may be. I look forward to sharing my creations with you this summer!
