The area I live in has been hit by flash flooding. I am counting my house lucky, as we only have some water in the basement , and a newly leaking roof. Several of the surounding homes are flooded, lucky fo my area the retaining wall kept the water at bay. Houses one street over from mine were evacuated. We had some of the neighborhood children here at our house. To help keep them distracted, we played giant treehouse, also had a few games of ice dice.0908110755.jpg this picture shows where the water is up to the top of the retaining wall. its about 25 to 30 feet to where the water level normally is. here is a link to the local paper. http://www.pressconnects.com/section/NEWS/Local-News
We gave away some clothing,food and games to one family that lost their home today. Time for some much needed rest.
