We could see that the field next to ours was flooding. I figured it was just rain water because we're about a mile from the rivers. It was raining so hard with no let up and I just thought it was from all of that. Over the next few hours, we watched the water flood across the road down there. That house down at the end is my neighbor's and they said the tide was coming up and it was about a foot deep in some places in their yard.
I checked the yard at 9pm and I really couldn't see anything because of the dark. There was really nothing we could do but prepare for the worst by that point. Kacey slept in the living room, just in case the waters came up. I finally dozed off somewhere around 10-11pm. My alarm went off for me to do Kacey's blood sugar check at 2am and the winds were far worse than they'd been. I did her check and peeked outside again and still couldnt see anything. I knew high tide would be rolling in between 4-5am. I went on back to sleep and when I woke up at 6am.....this is what I walked out to.....
Frankie's truck.....and MY YARD...which was now....A RIVER!!!
The further pic above looking down my driveway was now THIS.... water across the road
Frankie's dog pens were underwater! Thankfully he put his dogs in the back of his truck last night when we knew it was getting bad.
This shows where the tide came up and across my yard. My house is to the right which shows...it flooded right under my house!!
We've got alot of mess to clean up but it's still too nasty to be out there. It's still raining and the tide has gone down but we're left with a mess of debris and stuff blown all over the yard to clean up.
I'm thankful that it didn't come IN the house this time!
