a few more flood pics

The water's gone down quite a bit today, but it's still raining pretty hard, so who knows what will happen next.
The really cool thing is that now if I live to be 80, I can rear back in my chair and say "Waaall, I r'member back in the flood of ought-six..." So that'll be pretty cool.

wow, this is "impressive" (if you could call it that). how high has the water been? the 3rd pic looks pretty bad as far as the house is concerned.

we had floods in '86, '95 & '97 -- up to the rooflines in several neighborhoods. national tv coverage in '95 -- even had the president come to view the damage that particular year. working for the city involved, dealing with the aftermath of paperwork is no piece of cake either...

hope you're staying dry!

Very interesting pictures. Fortunately we're well above the flood plain. However, some streets are flooded in the area. While you were filling sandbags, we were drinking beer and watching it on the news. I feel your pain.
