Storm story

These are pictures of our neighbor's house when the flood was just getting started and when it was getting dangerous. You can see the progress of the flood waters especially when they reached the roof of our neighbor's house. The first photo on the left is the second story window of our other neighbor. By then the water was in the first floor of the house. I didn't take pictures inside the house, but if you can imagine your family refrigerator bobbing in the water bumping the walls of your house...well...thats how it was. For 12 hours. It wasn't traumatic. It just made us realize the we were lucky to be dry, safe. And that we had helped strangers be dry and safe as well.
