For the past two weekends, our breaks from working on the old house have been trips to the riverfront. It's sad to see the water so far out of the banks. We made it down to see some of the damage near Oakville. Although I find this image to be so beautiful, it represents what has been destructing the land. The water is not in the boundaries of a lake or river, but has encroached the surrounding fields.I am not sure what the status of this building was before the water rushed through the area, but my guess is it was in one piece and the vehicle inside was sitting on all four wheels. There was debris all over (see the filing cabinet in the foreground?).

Prayers go out to those that have lost their homes and property to this disaster. Seeing how the residents of Louisa County (and the other counties devastated by this event) have come together to help each other reinforces why I live in this state!
