We've got hit last Sunday and flood water continued to rise and fall during the next 5 days. This used to be my drawing area.
The rising water was the least of our worries. Our water line was busted during the flood and I need to cut off our water supply. The main valve was some 30 feet outside the house and the strong water current and heavy rains made it a very risky attempt.
The following night, an electrical outlet got shorted and burned which left us in the dark the whole evening while heavy rains continued to pour down and flood water rushed in again downstairs.
The weather is clearing up now and I've got the water and electricity running again. It will take sometime to get the house in order. We're fortunate to say the least, others have water up to their roofs.
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. God bless us all.
