While we were in Indiana, we wanted to go to Steve's nephew Brent's wedding to Denisa, in Frankfort. We were about 45 minutes into our trip when we realized we were in serious trouble. We were traveling through rain and began to notice flooding, mudslides, power outages, emergency vehicles, etc. By the time we decided we should turn around the roads were blocked in almost every direction. It took us 7 hours to find a way back to Bedford.

Here's a picture of Brent and Denisa at Sherilyn's wedding.

Flash flooding near Martinsville

37 South was blocked because it was flooded in several places. We had been on this road heading north an hour before.

A flooded creek

More flooding

Never seen anything like it!

This road which we were on washed out.


This is an exit ramp (off 37 onto 67) which we had just been on, here you can see water spilling over the concrete lane dividers.


Another flooded road in Martinsville. Potted plants from a nursery are floating across the road.

65 South finally dried up enough for us to get back to Bedford. But the northbound lanes are still flooded in this picture.
It was quite an experience!

Sherilyn's Wedding

We were able to attend Sherilyn and Andy's Wedding. Sherilyn is Steve's brother Darrell's daughter. It was a beautiful wedding and it was great to see so many family members and friends.
