Oklahoma City Flooding

Oklahoma 076This past Saturday when I was in Oklahoma City they had rain. They’ve had rain. And they were having more rain and more rain predicted. We had worked the an estate sale and came back to our friend’s house exhausted. I took a nap and it started raining so hard it woke me up. I went to the kitchen and everyone was outside on the patio watching the huge drainage ditch overflow. The ditch goes under a bridge and the water was so much that it couldn’t go under the bridge fast enough and started backing up.  There was a lake forming at the bridge. We watched for a long time and when the rain slacked up it started going down eventually. We went inside to watch the news and flooding was all over the city. News cameras were capturing people trying to get home and cars were getting flooded. Even the weathermen were saying people were really stupid for trying to drive through the water. water 4 water 3 Water 2 Water 1 Oklahoma 076
