We were greeted this morning with pictures of the flooding that occurred overnight in Merced. Most of this occurred on the west side of Merced, and we live on the east side. Still, it makes you aware of how little control you have when nature runs rampant.

The forecast is for light showers the rest of the week. We pray that the waters will recede, and the poor folks who got chased out of their homes last night will be able to restore some order to their lives.
