I have lived here for 40 years and I cannot recall anything like this. We have had some bad hurricanes [Agnes, Isabel] but nothing like this rain. Just RAIN! Jeesh.
Thank goodness it has now stopped.
Now the clean up begins.
In our little world that means Pooldad's customers. "Pool" being the operative word in his name. I talked to him this afternoon and he told me that they have [so far] 12 pools that look something like this:
Mudslides, right into the pool. They have to be drained, cleaned and refilled.
I cannot even imagine what these poor people's homes look like. I cannot imagine what most of our area looks like, except for what I see on the news and those images are crazy.
I don't even know what to say. I just hope everyone is okay and that you are able to salvage what is most important to you. Be safe.
Everything is cancelled this weekend, so it promises to be quiet. I hope wherever you are is safe, comfortable and dry.
See ya' on the flipside.
