A Couple of Pictures

The first picture is our front yard and the street in front of it.  The water is from the Ogeechee River which is down the street and across the road.



The next picture is our backyard, the water, which is a lagoon, should be back behind the statue.  It eventually came all the way up to the steps of our deck.  There was even a turtle swimming in out backyard.



We live in an area, because of the threat of flooding, where houses are required to be build 14 feet about the ground.   So I didn't worry too much about the water getting in the house, though I worried about it getting into the garage, it's at ground level.  and damaging the car.  It didn't get in.

  2. That's still a lot of water. So glad everything was safe and no major problems. You have electricity, don't you? I suppose you have a lot of debris that floated or flew in. So happy you are both okay!

  8. Hope the cleaning up isn't too stressful. We helped some folk here in Aus. clean up after flooding and it's an awful mess once the water recedes. Thoughts are with you & hope you get some help.
