With the preparations all of my Facebook friends were making and all the talk on the news and weather websites, I started getting nervous about Hurricane Sandy. Then the storm approached and it never seemed to rain especially hard, just constantly. Monday night the winds really picked up, but we've lived in Kansas and we grew up in California where Santa Ana winds are big and strong this time of year. It didn't seem especially unique, just a bad storm, not a hurricane. Tuesday morning we drove down to Richmond so we could Trick or Treat with the cousins on Wednesday. I logged into Facebook and saw the pictures some different people from our ward posted of the field where the kids play soccer. It's a giant lake! The smallish river at the edge of the field over ran its banks and the soccer fields are sort of a flood basin. The result:
There shouldn't be any water in these pictures. All the water is flooding what should be an enormous soccer field with at least 10 or more fields.
