3 Feet High and Rising

Don’t know if you heard, but we had a flood last week due to the remnants of Hurricane Fay.   The weather people didn’t call for it really, just some rain.  So we went to sleep thinking we were just getting rain. We woke up and flipped out.  There’s a huge “natural” area behind our house.  Our lying builders told us they were going to put a pool and a playground there.   Well, we sure did get our pool!  Click to enlarge the pics.  Poor CSP was running around with the weather on the tv, computer, & radio.  Trying to decide when & if to start carrying valuables upstairs. I took these pics from our master bedroom window on the 2nd floor.Flooding just beyond my back fence. Flooding just beyond my back fence.Flooding just beyond my back fence.My neighbor's fence.  And the new lake behind it. Thankfully we were spared and the water didn’t come into our yard. It was a close call for sure. Now if we can just get through the rest of hurricane season!
