Catastrophic Flooding

This was the headlines in today's paper. We have had a total of 26 inches of rain so far, and it just keeps raining with the winds blowing off and on all day long. Above you can see the flooded back porch and the lovely green, overflowing pool. Yes, that is debris that somehow got into the back pool deck and you can see how high the water was until I went outside to drain it. 4 times. Around 8 inches each time. Yeah, that is alot of water! Did I mention that the kids are out of school again today and tomorrow?? They went back to school on Monday and have been home the rest of the week. Now we'll have to make up the days they lost. That won't be fun. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We drove around a little today and the flood waters are receding which is very good news. I'm sure this will take a lot of time and money to clean up.
