Oh Goodness! The Storms...

We have been hit daily, our basement has flooded, and then flooded again (2 feet of water!). We lost the kids trampoline... how sad they are! It ended up in the tree, but not before it took out the neighbors friends car who was there seeking refuge in the basement!It is now a mangled mess! We lost power for 8 hours ( we lost power more than once but that was the longest stretch! It looked as though we shared a lake with our neighbors! The yards and roads were so flooded! Trees were down all over the place... blocking roadways even... ambulances had to turn around on some of the roads, like the one next to us, to find an alternate route to get to their house call.

Here are some pictures from around us... all within 2 to 4 blocks of our house. The last picture is of the nursing home... just around the corner from us... they had nothing better to do than to look out at the flooded parking lot :(
