Mail. It's something we expect to be delivered to our house everyday. We never think that there will be a time we won't get mail delivery. What's their saying? Through wind and rain and snow...I'm not sure. I am sure of one thing. When there is a river that runs through the middle of your town and your town is experiencing flooding, you will not get any mail delivery. In fact, I am expecting a package tomorrow. But, I checked the tracking and it made it to West Virginia and hasn't moved yet. You see, I live in Eastern NC where we are experiencing floods greater that Hurricane Floyd. It is one record you do not want to see broken, but it happened. The record broke last night and the river is still rising. The post office where are mail gets delivered is on the other side. There is no way for them to get us, on the south side of the river, our mail. We don't know when the road to town will open back up. We don't know how this will affect the businesses in the path of the flood. The only thing we do know is that we need to pray. Yes, this town has lived through a flood before and was more prepared this time, but that doesn't mean it is easier. Floods are not fun. But, there is One who will take care of His children and He will provide. My five minutes are up, but I just wanted to say that we do have a way to get to a different town (20 minutes away) for groceries and supplies.
Below is a picture of our way into town that was taken yesterday morning.
Update: 10/19/16: The roads have cleared and we received mail for the first time in a week.
