So, this neck of the woods is experiencing the worst rain storm and flooding of the past 70 years. It's wild to see all the streets and areas that I normally drive through, submerged under water.
My old street - the house I lived in before this one - had a brook at the end of it. It's now a rapids, and it engulfed two of the houses near it. They're sitting roof high under water. Amazing.
Fortunately for us, while we're in an area that has been affected by the flooding - our neighborhood is in a newer development that has been built up. My driveway, which is at a very steep incline - doesn't even have puddles in it. But the woods behind me, which are about 20 feet below us - are a small river. The mosquitos this summer are going to be brutal! (Thank goodness for my Mosquito Magnet!!!)
And now, they're talking about diseases being spread in the still waters in many of the towns that are affected. Sewage pipes broke and mingled with the river/spring/creek waters that took over the roads.
Right now, however - the sun is shining! I can't believe I'm seeing it. But it's not to last I've heard. Rumor has it - more storms tonight and potentially even more flooding as it's supposed to be a 2" rainfall.
But I'm enjoying the sun at the moment....
