I posted 1st day of school pics earlier today in the rain, and the rain just kept coming. By midday schools were closing and sending kids home. It was a very short 1st day for some kids, and a very long one for others. There were a few washed out roads, so some bus routes couldn't go out and parents of the kids on those routes had to come to the schools to pick their kids up. This was my road at midday.(Sorry for the poor driving/camera phone pic.)
Our backyard waterfall is a raging torrent of water.
This "lake" is Ty Cobb Stadium in 2006.
We don't live anywhere near the river, in fact we live far up a large hill, but the water rushing down the hill overwhelmed our french drains,and topped our foundation. It was literally raining from the ceiling tiles in our basement. We've dug new drainage ditches, laid new pipe & gravel, and so far it's holding. We don't expect water this time around, but I know that those who live in lower areas will almost certainly be flooded again. Fingers crossed the river level predictions are wrong.
Thanks for popping in and commiserating with me.
