My fishing boat......full of water. If you look close at the picket fence...right below the middle brace...you can barely make out the water mark left by the high water from the 14 inches we had here at our lake place. This picture is 3 foot down from where it was!
Here is what is left of our damaged dock walkway.....which was completely under water......wah..wah...that is where I go out and feed the fish day old bread and dry dog food..........but I can't now!! ( the fish looovee puppy chow )
And this is what I see when I look out in the mornings having my coffee or when I am sitting here sewing up a storm! Can anyone see Mr. Red Cardinal anywhere?? He's here....in this picture somewhere??!!
Our lake house is about an hour from where we live. It is a small.. private, members only club. 65 members max. No loud fast motor boats.....just calm nice and relaxing fishing........after the 14 inches of rain in just 2 days we needed to come check things out. Our house is high up and fairly safe from ever being flooded......but not the case for some others down here. My neighbor to the right of me ( the first picture I posted ) her house flooded completely.....up about 18 inches!!! I feel terrible for her! At home we had 7 inches of rain in one day.....and all this rain was not from Ike.......it was the left overs of that hurricane that came across Baja Calif...............I'm just so thankful we do not have the problems of those poor people down by Houston. Our "little" damage here doesn't compare!!!
This is the time of year when dear hubby has shut off his irrigations wells.......and he is just worting....uh...I mean waiting with me for harvest time. Yes....I AM WAITING for harvest. This is the time of year when my days are not my own . There is this person....uh ...I mean dear hubby is EVERYWHERE I am........... I don't think I am going to like HIS.....uh...I mean OUR retirement!!
