The rain ended early this morning, and we made it through the night with a dry basement. The trenches and new drains that CG had put in held up to the onslaught of water. The only blip we had here was that a skunk had taken refuge in our garage. Don't ask me how it got in. Unfortunately not everyone here was as lucky as we were. Our friend's parents' home early this morning had 4 feet of water in the basement and the water was still rising. That would be floating drywall that they had been planning on using to finish off the basement.
You can see all the cars submerged in the Walmart plaza.
I spent part of my day driving around, trying to check on friends in lower lying areas to help out any way that I could. The task was made more difficult, because so many of the roadways had been closed. The parkway that connects Vestal(my town) to Owego(the next town over.)
Thanks for popping in and checking on our wet, wet area. Please keep this area in your thoughts and prayers tonight.
