I was trying to be fun and sneaky all at the same time, plotting and planning~all to no avail.

You see, yesterday my sister turned 40! So very exciting. I took a couple of days off of work and planned my little trip to see her, she had no idea, no one in her family did. I called her yesterday morning~acting like I was only on break at work~and she mentions that there is flooding everywhere, the kids have a delay at school because of it and she thinks I-5 might be closed.
Oh, I say, trying not to sound concerned. I get off the phone, head to the computer and the news stations and find out that indeed, I-5 is closed the 20 mile stretch that I need to go on to get to her exit! I can't get there. My car is loaded and ready, presents for the sister, my bags for a couple of days, and there is no way to get to her. The only option a 400, yes 400 mile detour. I don't think so. I wait...I watch.....I listen....I make phone calls....I can't get there. So finally, last night after she went to dinner with her family, I let her in on a little secret. Sis, I was going to be there with you tonight, but the rain had a different plan.

Today, I still sit here, wishing that I could get through I-5 to my sister. But I guess, I will just have to do it another day.

By the way, thank you for your prayers. God is good~all the time.
