PRAYING FOR RAIN

Well since times for us have been hard, we have been praying for a miracle. Sometimes we pray for rain...because rain encourages people to RENT movies...so money for us to help us pay our bills. But this time we didn't pray for rain. But the rain came anyways:


This is our backyard & our lanai.


This is right outside our side door. We are 1/4" away from flood in our house.


This is our street right in front of our house facing Mauka side.

We are VERY lucky that our house is NOT flooded. At 5:30 this morning our neighbors 4 houses down, they opened their garage door & their kayak drifted into their house. 4-6 houses on the street have ankle deep water in their house. Many of their items have been ruined, and they have lost lots of things. I hope that the rain lets up, so it won't get to us.

    1. I had to rescue a few families that had to jump out of their kitchen windows and get in my kayak as i owed them to safety. I also had to row an entire family (5 kids) in a kayak with all of their clothing in garbage bags.
      this was a "mindset" changing day for me.

    2. The rain has stopped since later last night, and the sun is shining, so hopefully it won't come back too hard. We are so fortunate to not have lost anything. So many people on our street had to dump so much stuff. I will post pictures later.

    3. Wow - I didn't realize how much rain you all were getting. I sure hope it doesn't go any higher and your home will be okay. We'll be thinking of you guys.

    4. glad you are okay - love you

      we are so proud of you for focusing on others needs when you could have only thought of yourselves. we love you!

    5. whoa...holy....right about now I am glad we're outta there. although we have two inches of snow in our yard...shoot...hope everything is okay and there wasn't too much damage!
