The Flood of 2011

Wow. Check out the pics of our flooding. This has happened 5 or 6 times in the last 2 weeks, each time is a little worse because the ground is so saturated and the rivers so swollen. We just noticed a little water in our basement. Others have had it much worse. We've lived here 19 years and I have NEVER, EVER seen anything like it.

I'll have to get pics from up above our house. The pond is overflowing with all the streams coming through. Andrew and I counted 6 new independent streams coming down the hill. Yikes! To top everything off, we had a full-fledge tornado WARNING tonight. We didn't have any trouble here. I guess I'll have to check to see what was reported in the wider area.

Here's Jeffrey checking out the drainage pipe that goes from west to east. You can see the spray of brown dirt toward the bottom of the pic . . .sorry it's so blurry!

This is our neighbor's overworked drainage pipe!


  1. Wow! Glad you guys are ok for the most part! Hope things start to dry out from here on out!

  2. Wow! That's terrible! Hope we get some relief from the rain soon, but unfortunately it doesn't look like it.
