Scripture Reading: Build Your House on the Rock

Oh the weather! It’s times like these that remind us of some of the worst weather-related disasters, some current and some past. What Wisconsin residents will ever forget the Lake Delton disaster of 2008. On the morning of June 9th, 2008, after several days of drenching rain’s, flood waters over topped the banks of Lake Delton and washed away a narrow strip of land separating the lake from the Wisconsin River. Raging waters sent the 267 acre lake Delton surging into the Wisconsin River and scoured a channel 700 feet long by 370 feet wide and 30 feet deep. In a manner of a few hours the lake was drained of more than 600 million gallons of water leaving only muddy flats. Portions of the Lake Shore and a section of County trunk highway A, which ran atop the narrow strip of land, were swept away.
