As Hurricane Isaac gained strength
and moved towards the Gulf Coast,
it slowed down when it moved onto New Orleans
and flooded the Mississippi delta
with 20+ inches of rain.
But Isaac wasn't finished.
The hurricane continued on northward,
carrying its heavy rains into the Midwest,
up the Mississippi Valley . . .
making a bullseye pass through Missouri,
and bringing us some much needed rain
and ending a 3-month deadly drought.
We welcomed the thunderstorms and heavy rains.
(It is due to leave us on Sunday.)
Thanks for stopping by, Isaac!
