and the rains came pouring down….

Last Thursday we were hit with the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole. It arrived with us under a Flash Flood Warning, Tornado Warning, Drought Warning, and Fire Ban!!!! Quite the contrast!

Most of you have asked how our property faired, well here you are!

To the left is our property last Thursday—To the right is our property in 2008

To the left is from Thursday—-To the right is from 2008 (what it normally looks like)

The rest are from last Thursday…From the bridge (toward the amish farm then toward our property)

 the Neighbors yard

The farmers field on the other side of the creek

More of the amishman’s field

The road on the opposite side of the bridge

the road looking back toward our house

Numerous vehicles drove past the “road closed signs” and tried to see if it was worth trying to get through! Most vehicles threw their vehicles into reverse and turned around in our driveway! Some went through, leaving us holding our breath as we watched on! Where we live pretty much of the town was covered with flooding and “road closed” signs. 

All in all, our rain gauge said we got just over 8 inches!!!!

Blessings on your week!!!

  1. Wow!  Lots of water!  Praise the Lord you were high and dry!

    Wasn’t the flood in 2008 after the thawing snow? Glad it didn’t come up further. And I’m sure the people who turned around in your driveway were thankful for your kindness. Oh, and I’m very thankful the rains waited until we come home to Philly, I probably would have had a panic attack watching the water rise!

  4. We got that rain! It dropped over 8 inches in one night and we had to cancel our trip back to Florida because of the roads being closed. It was crazy how much water was everywhere.  In Florida we got a lot of rain, but we had sugar sand so it never flooded.  It was our first time seeing something like that.  Glad you guys did ok through it though
