Just went to retrieve one of the shutters out of the yard. While I was out there, I noticed the street looked funny. The water is up over the storm drain. Shin deep in the center of the street. Knee deep by the curb. This neighborhood doesn't flood. REAL hard for it to with the damn and all draining off into Jones Creek. I figure if the rain will slack up we will drain off okay. BUT...|
As I was going into the bathroom to get a towel to dry off with...the toilet gurgled at me. I looked. Water is gurgling and bubbling and rising in the bathrooms.
This reminds me of Andrew. It's so much different than Katrina as we are on the Eastern side of it this time. The winds are only about 30 - 40 mph, but they are pretty steady and the rain is torrential.
Power flickers and flashes, but haven't had a full on outage yet. *keeps fingers crossed*
