Life in Elba
As we lay in bed last night discussing the barricaded streets nearby and the people moving their cars out of our neighborhood, I started to realize what it's like to live in Elba, Alabama. When we bought this house, we knew it had flooded before. But I never thought it might happen again...until seeing the river today. Still we made the treck to ZC this morning, because there were lots of little minds just waiting for knowledge to be shared. We crossed a bridge on the way to school, and I have no doubt the water was no more than 6 inches from the bridge. At 10:25 we were told that the entire elementary needed to be fed within the hour, because we were dismissing at 12:30 (There's no way they even tasted that food). So here we are, back at home...seeing several packing up on our way back into the neighborhood. We're hoping to stay dry. If not, maybe Mr. Vince will come get us on the boat.
