Things got really bad here today
« on: December 13, 2007, 10:06:43 PM »
It rained 10 - 12 inches today!  That mixed with our 6 inches of snow from last week, and we've had massive floods.  Our downtown was completely flooded out and the only road in and out of town was closed due to the flooding. Most of the businesses were damaged.  These are small family businesses owned and patroned by folks in the community.  Many people had to be rescued from their homes and cars today, too.  Our podunk little town even made the evening news. There are kids in our county who had to spend the night at their school because the buses couldn't get them home due to creeks flooding the roads.  Luckily, we are high on a hill, but our neighbors below aren't and had to evacuate their home.  My parents also live on a hill, but their driveway has a bridge over the creek and it was flooded over.  Had to cancel my grandma's hair appointment (poor granny ;)).  Now, we're supposed to have ice showers and then more snow.  There are places without utilities that won't get fixed until the water recedes.  It's really sad.  Doesn't look like things are going to get much better any time soon.

Hey Mum,

How ghastly! Down here in Oz we're just emerging from a 7 year long drought and earlier this year we had bad flooding in parts of New South Wales. Of course at least it wasn't -60000 degrees here when it floods.

Hope you're OK.

Difficult conditions indeed. I hope the displaced folks can still have a warm family Christmas together. The approaching icy precipitation is not good news on top of the flood damage. It's tough sometimes living in the hills and hollers of your area of the country. I sure hope you guys will be able to keep warm and dry through all of this.
