Due to all the rain, there is quite a bit of flooding here. We live near the Tittabawassee River and there is a park at the river's edge that is completely under water. The 26th Annual Walleye Festival is this weekend on this river. Besides the car show, the good food and all the other festival fun, there's also the main event, which is the fishing tournament, where fishermen compete to catch the largest Walleye. The overflowing river is very dangerous so they were forced move the competition to other rivers in the area, less swollen from the rains. Wishing them luck...
Today we were out and about running errands, and even though the clouds are back and it is colder and windy outside, there are buds on the trees and NO snow on the ground... I am LOVING that!! We did have to take a huge detour to get from our house to downtown Midland, because of the flooding over the roads. As we were driving along, I had George stop so that I could take some pictures. I thought I'd share a few of those pictures with you, to give you an idea of how much some areas have flooded.

(¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥ Well, more rain is expected tonight, but they say it won't be too much ~ and that's a good thing. We are very thankful that the water hasn't reached any homes here in our area... Although we do have some water seeping into our basement, it's nothing compared to other areas harder hit.
The weather has been quite destructive all over and my heart goes out to all who have been affected by the recent tornadoes. Such devastation, my prayers are with them.
