water came up all around it (up about a foot on the outside walls) but never came under the door. Early Friday morning a decision was made to break the dam of the main lake (which I'm on) in the back as the spill way couldn't handle the amount of water and in hopes of saving the rest of the homes. So around 6AM they broke the dam. The rain stopped Friday morning and by lunch they had the roads back open so we could get out. It dried out Friday afternoon and Saturday but the storms came back Sunday. These only dropped about 1/2 inch of rain but it was alot stronger than the other two storms. This is the storm with the tornado in it. And now instead of my beautiful view of the lake out my back window, I have a huge mud bog. I know this is nothing compared to the floods in the midwest but it's big here. During the storm more than 80% of the roads were close because they were inpassible.
Needless to say I've had lights and Internet more off than on over the weekend and couldn't do much work on scrapbooking stuff.
Add to that we had to put my mom back in the hospital and I knocked myself out Saturday with a glass my daughter got on a cruise last year. I know it's sounds really stupid but I was in the top of the fridge trying to get some ice out for supper and shook the ice tray and the glass came rolling off, hit me across my nose and eye, busted my nose, blacked my eye and knocked me out. I wouldn't believe it if it hadn't happened to me so I'm running around with a black eye and a bad cut across the top of my nose now.
Anyway, I'm back, mom's home, got lights and Internet and thought I would share a few pic or too.
The first pic is the view from my office.
The second pic is a local Elementary School playground.
The third pic is of one of my neighbor's yard.
The final pic is where they broke the dam in the back of the lake. The day before it looked like a rapid. There's a 30ft break in the dam.
Sorry the quality of pics isn't good but you can see all the water.
