I feel like I lost a day or two from my life. Ike came calling Saturday evening and stuck around until about noon on Sunday. I got to work Sunday morning, because I left at 6:00 am and it was dark and I could see how much water there was everywhere.
By the time I got off work, all the rivers were out of their banks and I couldn't get back home. I was lucky because our house is on a hill, and even though all of the soybean fields on our farm were flooded, we didn't have any wind or water damage to our house. And I was able to spend the night at our son's house, so it wasn't too bad. Certainly not as bad as a lot of people who have been really suffering.
It was cloudy all day today, with just a break in the clouds as the sun went down. I took this with the foliage setting, I think, to try to get the colors to be truer.
Here's basically the same shot taken with either the landscape setting or on automatic. I change the settings so much all the time now, that I forget which setting I've used for which picture. My hubby went out yesterday to take pictures of all the water. I had left the camera on manual setting, which he didn't think was right, so he changed it and ended up taking movie clips. Some of them are really funny. I have several clips of him walking where all you can see is the tips of his shoes on the gravel. He's done something with the camera that I haven't tried yet!
No work tomorrow. I'm ready for a day off!
