Watch Out for the Flood!

This is a picture of Noah's Ark. Yes, you read that correctly, it is Noah's Ark currently being reconstructed in Frostburg, Maryland on the side of the freeway by a church. I have driven past this a couple times now but this was the first time I was able to snap a quick pic of it out my car window. And while it looks like the structure of an office building or something normal like that, the sign in front confirms what I just typed - "NOAH'S ARK Being Rebuilt Here".

So, the fact that there is an ark being built in Maryland raises all kinds of questions for me:
1) Am I living near a flood zone? Should I take out flood insurance?
2) What does this church know that I don't?
3) When will the ark be finished? What is the construction timeline so I know when to start driving back to Maryland?
4) Are there 2 of every kind of animal also living close by?
5) Do you have to be a member of the church to be on the ark guest list?
6) The ark is being made of it rust-proof?
7) Does the pastor write for the National Enquirer newspaper?

But mainly I feel sorry for the ark builders because someone apparently didn't tell them the rest of the Bible story ~ God promised to never again send a flood to destroy the earth :)

  1. OK, should this be another "girls weekend field trip" to see the Ark? And, is there a shopping mall close by? By the way, I am so impressed that you remember your Bible facts!!! Love, Mom
