I wanted to drop you a quick note and I mean quick. Well I honestly don’t know how quick it will be because we are using dial-up this morning, something I haven’t used in forever. After Wednesday’s posts (Samhain), we immediately left for Eastern Kentucky. The reason being I had caught enough flax over being their High Priestess and not attending their coven meetings. I had been having a woman stand in for me but that was not good enough. We had listened to the weather reports at home before we left. It was called for the area back home to be hit by a massive rain cell moving through. Thus, everyone changed the trick-or-treat date for the kids to Tuesday. Anyway, we watched the weather and that band that was suppose to bring all the rain was suppose to miss this area. Keyword, “suppose too!”
When we left Paducah, it was pouring down rain. We eventually out ran the rain and thought we were in the clear. Brother, did I think wrong. We had our gathering before the actual coven ritual was suppose to start, everything was lovely. We even made it through the coven’s Samhain ritual without a drop of rain. So everyone was pleased with the ritual, it was a success and now I am hooked for Yule. As we were getting ready to leave it came a cloud burst, I have never seen so much rain in my life. We decided we would wait the rain out because you couldn’t even see across the street to the houses over there. We stayed up to 2:00 a.m. waiting the rain out. It never let up. I believe it poured even harder. We decided that it would be too risky to drive in that kind of weather. So we decided to spend the night. We all crowded into various cabins and houses and made ourselves at home.
The next morning, when we got up, you could not even see anything but water everywhere. I mean I love water but this was a little too much for even me. It was still drizzling Thursday morning when we got up. By that time you couldn’t tell where the roads were or where the creek beds started or stopped. So we are basically flooded in.
This morning (Friday), the water is starting to slowly go down. I seriously doubt that we make it out of here today. There will be mud in the roads, tree branches to clear and not to mention the rocks or boulders that have found their way into the road. I am hoping we will be on our way Saturday, hoping. These people are hard workers and they depend on the roads up here as their means to the outside world. Along with them, the men that came with us will be pitching in also. We are having a good time with our family and friends, I just wish it was under different circumstances.
I wanted to drop you a note and let you know what was going on and why the WOTC was down for another day. I hope you understand, I figure when Yule rolls around I will be writing another one of these messages. But then, we will be snowed into the Spring thaw. We will be back as soon as the roads are passable and please keep us in your prayers that we make it home safely.
