Major Water Main Break In My Community!!

(I took this photo from my TV)

I was really hoping to do a giveaway for my 100th post, but instead I'm posting to report a horrible event going on in my town: a HUGE water main break caused by a collapsed highway has caused massive flooding, not very far from where I live. Cars are submerged almost completely under water, homes are flooding, and people are being evacuated by boat. People are wading in waist-deep water to try and get out to dry land, and many people will be displaced from their damaged homes for quite a while. Hubby's best friend Doug lives not very far from where the flooding is. Although his home is safe for now and has not flooded, he will not have power, gas or water in his home for several hours. My father in law will be out of work for a while since the grocery store where he works is located right across the street from the highway that collapsed and caused the water main break, and it is now completely flooded. This is going to cause millions of dollars worth of damage, and our community will be feeling the effects of this for several months. Please, my blogger friends, keep our community in your prayers.
