Rain

I am stuck at a friend's house. Yesterday, I crossed the bridge to this little town spend some time with a friend and help her with work. I thought that the storm was over but it started again last night. See here.

All three from here are connected to the rest of the world with some sort of bridge or fairy. I usually take the fairy. In regular heavy rain, heavey the fairy closes and it could not withstand this storm. The next route is on a nice paved road that makes the trip a little longer but a lot smoother. That bridge is under water. The next route is a long rough road that goes through four rural villages. The road during this time is muddy and crosses over a few creeks and low lying little bridges. I came that way yesterday. That way is closes now though.

A friend of mine just texted and said that she was over in this little town and she took the long way home. She attempted to drive across a low bridge covered with water and was almost swept away.

I may stay put for awhile. Good thing I have Internet access.

I still love the rain though.....even if I might not be eating rice this year.

hmm a friendly advice..re-read ur post once for spelling and grammatical errors before posting..that way u will develop ur writing skill. Spell check doesnt always catch mistakes.

Wow thats scary reading!

It's times like this when some of us need to realise how lucky we actually are when it comes to the weather.

Hope things are ok there now :-)

Well, I didn't really realize there was a difference. I thought one was British and one was American.

That was more shaming than mispelling something in my classroom!

I agree with Carrie that the correct term is ferry and not fairy Beth. I think our creole is to blame for our improper use of English.

Also a nice point by Reema, since proof reading what we write helps minimize our grammatical mistakes.

Don't worry Beth, I have made mistakes too. A good example is the use of: Their and there. Which I still have problems with.

Lol! Why do I have a feeling this is turning into an English Class?

Wow, this rain really did a number. Thanks for writing about it. Apart from that I'm really glad you made it home ok I guess we all are indirectly affected as you mentioned or situation with rice.

I'm not giving any advise on spelling nor grammatical errors..by all means I'm not perfect. He without fault cast the first stone. I'm sure we all know that re reading our own works sometimes doesn't help...hence that's why there exists the job/career path of editors. Thank the good lord my hubby doesn't charge...lol

Beth said...

LOl.... Helwa, you're sweet....

How much would he charge me?
