2 Small Groups Make Their Way Through Flood Waters~

Two small groups of White-tailed Deer were making their way through a wooded area that had become flooded this week, following heavy rains.  We have had some very dangerous weather around our region. In January 2 tornado watches turned into warnings and we had a touchdown as close as 16 miles from our home.  Then on Wednesday, more heavy rains and there were 11 tornadoes that touched down in Kentucky, alone, not including other states that were involved in this storm front.  Today the forecast is for even more severe and dire weather.  We have no basement and we live in a valley, which means no where to go, if a tornado ever hits our home.  If a tornado ever gets in this valley, it will do great damage before it devastates and moves out...  

My heart thoughts are for those whom have lost their homes and loved ones...
13 confirmed deaths following the storms from Wednesday.  My heart thoughts are also lifted for those living in flooding zones in Australia, which they showed on the tellie a bit ago,  stay safe~

Second small group moving away from flood waters~
