Getting to the hospital

Nicolaus Road: the ditches were full of water, big flocks of birds in the flooded rice fields.

Howsley Road: water over roadway. About five more of these until
I came to this one on S Brewer Road: the one I wouldn't drive through.
I backtracked and waded through about ten more water-over-roadway places, all had a mostly visible center yellow line. It took 1 1/2 hours to get to the hospital.

For all my friends who no longer drive in the rain, this was quite the driving adventure.

  1. We are still at Anastasia State Park in St. Augustine. Today's weather excitement is a little like yours. We started the day with Severe Storm Warnings, which turned to Alerts followed by Tornado Warnings which also turned into Alerts. When it passed over (the storm not the Tornado) those big old trees with their long extended limbs looked like they were rockin at a Jimmy Buffet concert. So far none have come crashing down. Hope things improve for your Mom and YOU are able to find a way home tonight.
