And the weather hit last night, the storm and the torrential downpour has caused flooding in the area. I got up, and thank goodness decided to head into work early.

Took my usual route, which had some standing water, nothing I couldn’t handle. It was when I hit the city proper of Marion, that oops. The road I normally travel on for work, was closed. Very high water, flooded the streets. So I turned around and decided to take a secondary road. And that one was closed as well. So was the third and fourth alternatives. I finally traveled up to the main thoroughfair and did fine. And I noticed the police sitting at closed roads. Whooo the one I used to use all the time was open, and while there was standing water, nothing that I couldn’t handle. Got to work about on time. For me, I like to be at least half an hour early, hang out in the car, and prepare myself for the day. Today it was twenty minutes early so still pretty good. And bonus, one of the staff brought in donuts. Woot! 😀

anywho, I have an appointment downtown during my lunch hour for my licensing application, and I can not be late. I’ve already talked with some of the staff and have an alternate route planned out, and I should still get there on time.

Please be careful if you live in any of the states that have been hit with these storms. Flash floods are not fun! Flooded roads also not fun! Use your common sense, drive accordingly and plan on using alternate routes. Oh yeah, leave early. I am so glad I left earlier than usual.

Have an awesome Friday!! 😀
