Hurry Build an Ark!

We are flooded!

9 inches of rain in 8 hours here!

The whole town is basically under water. Its crazy!

I just seen FEMA.
And the National Guard!

Luckily, my house is on high ground and I don't have to worry about the water.

So, I did what any responsible parent would do. I packed my kids in the car and went to take pictures of all the raging water and people's stuff floating off.

You see stuff like this on T.V. but when you are actually witnessing other people wading chest deep water you really understand the devastation on their lives.

I went and evacuated my Grandmother from her home, it was taking on water.

Pictures to come.

Stay tuned!

Can't wait to see pictures. We had to help my in-laws at the trailer park they reside in diring the summers as the creek had overflowed.

It's amazing how quickly a flood comes on.

When I was a child Lake Erie had flooded the hamlet of Port Bruce and people were waiting atop their roof's for rescue.

I glad you all safe.
