Flood Water..

This is our backyard..It's not a very good picture at all, but you can kinda see where the water was...there was ALOT! Remember the pond the kids And I was just at last week?? Well here it is..but only FLOODED!! there's some pictures from a previous post on here you can compare all the water too..it's something else! I'm taking this picture in the drivers seat!! yes the water got very high and went over the road eventually. This was only late Friday afternoon, it only got worse come sat. morning.... I wasn' able to take pictures of the water in our basement, there just wasn't enough time to do it! We, along with most of our block, our basement flooded! We caught it right as it was happening and was able to keep it in just HALF of our basement! A Praise though, our basement is UNFINSHED!! haha.. it was still gross though! eewww the neighbors had 2 in. of water , and mind you this is SEWER back up, not just rain water!! Eeeewwwww again! Alot I was able to put up on higher ground, just like boxes , kids toys and stuff. Come saturday, boy was I hurting...every bone in by body ached something TERRIBLE!! Now it's wednesday and we're just now getting things back to normal down there..am having to sanitize everything...FOR SURE!! YUCK! Well...that's all for the moment... Oh needless to say, We WAS NOT able to go to the fair this past sat. with everybody! :( Gavin got to go with his aunt becca and grandma, so he thought that was just AWESOME! hehe He did have a blast and was very happy he got to go :) Until later my chicka's........................
