by Margaret Seiders-Metz
It is hard to believe that these calm waters that we swim in, fish and cruise on with our pontoons and boats, would turn against us with its swift currents, dragging everything in its path along the way to destruction, leaving the victims suffering from the horrible disaster of flooding. It is useless to fight those swift, dangerous currents since they have strength of their own that no human can beat.
The flooding water destroys houses, trees, boats, piers, even the heavy appliances and furniture inside our flooded homes. The damage one is left with is unbelievable and very depressing after you see your beautiful items destroyed from the high levels of mud and water left inside your house. But, life goes on, and you start repairing and replacing the damage only to have it all damaged again and again by more floods.
You thank the Good Lord that He spared your family, pets and yourself. Material things can be replaced, but a life cannot be.
