Almost quite literally 
Reflecting in the standing pools of water
All over the Valley

Originally I was to post my dresser make over
But I will wait until tomorrow for that
Because We Had:

The craziest weather I have ever seen in Arizona
It all started about 2 AM
Rain, Lightening, Thunder

Here in Ahwatukee
We got about 4.5 - 5 inches of rain in about 6 hours
Chandler got nearly 6 inches

Most all of the roadways had closures
At some point
I even had to detour on my 1.5 mile drive to work

I don't know if this was a stupid motorist
Or if he just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time
But, fortunately he was rescued

Because we have amazing Fire Fighters

At this very hour
5:30 PM
There is a sub-division in Mesa that is being evacuated
Due to retention areas that are over-flowing
At least 3 evacuation centers have been opened in the Valley

And this is SO sad
This is the church where both my niece and my nephew were married
Totally flooded
They are working hard to clean it up
They are believing it will be open for services on Sunday
Only God!!

I'm thankful that I didn't fill my pool like I usually do on Sunday's
Because my pool is now FULL!!
 My back yard was flooded but nothing in the house

I'm grateful for protection for all of my family
And all of our office staff (some whom didn't make it to work today)

I'm praying for those most severely affected by this weather
Thank you for praying for our community today!



  1. Wow, Cindy. What a shame. It certainly doesn't take long to cause such devastation, does it? I've been through a few floods in my time, one that took the bridge out over the creek and we were stranded for 5 days until my Dad and Grandfather could put in a foot bridge. Lucky we knew enough ahead of time to take cars over bridge. I'm glad that your home was OK but it is so sad..Take care..Judy

  2. Oh my! I have relatives in Phoenix and surrounding areas. I wonder how far the flooding covered/\.

  3. I'm glad you made it through okay. We did too.

  4. Dear Cindy ~ I am so glad you are safe and no flooding. My heart and prayers go out to all those having to deal with the aftermath of the flooding.


  5. Oh my goodness! This is terrible. Just so glad your family is safe.


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
