FROM HOUSE ORGAN: Flood, Sweat and Tears

On Sunday, May 2, Barbara Carr’s mind was racing. She wasn’t sure what her next move was going to be.

She had already moved her car to a higher elevation in her yard. She stayed in constant communication with her neighbors – yelling from house to house concerned about the rising waters. She had placed a towel on her front door to alert emergency personnel that she needed help. All the while, she tried to calm the nerves of her 87-year-old mother.

Luckily a neighbor who owned a boat was headed her way.
