100 Year Flood

Well, it still raining here in Roswell, GA (north of Atlanta) and we expect rain for another week.  Ugh…  Last night we had from 10-18 inches of rain!!!  The weather folk say this is now set the record for a 100 year flood.  I guess it what we need :-0  based on the 100 year drought 2 years ago.

Anyway, I posted some pics.  It shows our little drainage creek flooding the lower half of our backyard, and also the road that is about 4 houses down (which that same creek runs under) and how it got washed out.  Poor house in one of those pictures had his car in the garage, and the whole garage was flooded to the top…argh!

Its not a good situation, school is out “because of rain” tomorrow (bet folks up north never heard that!), but really there are so many roads washed out like this one, it is very dangerous to drive on any backroad right now.

Anyway,, figured I’d give yall a peek at the south during Monsoon Season (we really don’t have a monsoon season, but it sure feels like it!)  YouTube video from our subdivision during the flood…
