Yes, "Qualms" in View 

 “Qualm” Daily Prompt of the day on WordPress…..

Yes, even though I tried not to I started having “qualms” when it rained like Noah’s Flood was on the way and especially when I looked up the weather channel to find when it was going to let up; I was starting to have some trepidation. My “qualms” about that evening became, even more, pronounce when I saw the warning in red that there was a flash flood watch in effect and you might want to evacuate to high ground in the city

Water by my steps  2 days after the flood.

No that is not a pond or lake with a boat dock to the left by the water.  This was a parking lot right in the middle of the floodplain.

My daughter was out of school for a week and one of my sons did not work for a week while they fixed the damage. So thankful that I was slightly higher up and on the other side of town. One of my son’s girlfriend’s parents lost almost everything. My daughter’s college a few years back was flooded so much that students climbed on the roof and had to be rescued. I used to look at images of Missouri flooding and tornadoes, wondering who would live in such a place; my home state is Washington. So here I am in the area that this is far more likely to happen in? At least I have bragging rights to having survived and lost nothing in the worst flood where I am at.
