We've been trapped on Mom's property all day. She was thinking of getting in the Jeep and trying to get out again today, but then her neighbor stopped by in her hip wader boots and pointed to a spot on her thigh about 1 &1/2 inches below the top of the waders, saying that was how deep the river was. It's probably gone up at least 6 inches from when I arrived last night.

We've been trading calls back and forth with my brother who is on the road on his way here (I thought he was flying, but he's driving instead). There's talk of him having to also wade in, and my possibly having to borrow a pair of waders so I can go home on Sunday. I'm really hoping it doesn't come to that, and the river will go down on its own accord far enough that Mom can drive me out of here to the Vibe. It'd help if rain wasn't predicted throughout this area and just north of us all along the river for the entire weekend.

Freaking Mother Nature...

I stayed up  late with Mom watching a movie and waiting to see if there'd be any further coordinating phone calls. But I'm ready to brush my teeth and hit the sack. Please cross your fingers for me- I really do not want to be stuck here any longer than I'd originally planned.
