Well, the flood of September 2011 has passed.
George and I are for tonight staying with friends.
I took enough clothes for 3 days.
We went to WalMart yesterday,
and bought the extra toiletries that I
forgot to grab.
The aftermath so far:
Although we don't have pictures of the house yet,
this is the street leading up to the street
the house is on:
Hard to see, but if you enlarge,
and look center, all the way to the back,
that is where our street turns left.
We are looking across the main
street (River St.), about
1/4 mile away.
See the stop sign? That's how deep the water is here.
I'm not sure what the point of this is..
people (most of them our neighbors)
sitting where the river water got up to,
watching it recede.
Apparently it's a tradition. Geez.
we should be able to get into
the house and assess the damage.
We think that the water completely
flooded the basement,
going into the first floor, and possibly up
into the first floor about 3'.
Hopefully it didn't go over
the kitchen counters,
as we had taken all the things in
the bottom cupboards
and placed them on the counter.
More to come...
