The sun in shining!!!!!!

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive May 2006: The sun in shining!!!!!!

The sun is finally shining!!!!

Colette... how are you doing over there???

We've had to pump from bottom to top! Basement and roof, which is flat and houses our central a/c unit! We moved our cars on Saturday, which was great, because the water and mud that came up would have engulfed them!!! For the most part, we came out pretty well. Unlike other parts of the city and region!

I am back to work today, which is quite something, since the town where I work was completed under water for the better part of the last four days, but, getting here was a disaster. My normal 12 minute commute was 2 hours!!!

I feel like a prune, but a happy prune!

Glad to hear you're all OK, Angela! I've been thinking about you. YES, it's great to see the sun, isn't it?! smileysun

Thank goodness!! I've been following the story closely and it looks like there is a ton of clean-up to be done. Hopefully the sun will stay out and life can get back to normal!

It is beautiful out. The kids went back to school today, but the buses can't go over the two main bridges to take them to they have to go through 5 towns in a big circle almost just to get the kids to school.

I am a little worried about the Powwow river in Amesbury. If the dam goes, the water will flood 2 nearby lakes which the brook in my backyard feeds into, that will = a flooded basement again for us.

I am glad you are ok! This was just crazy! Thank goodness it was not snow.

It amazes me how areas NOT in the south flood that way. See, we are surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico, lakes and swampland, and most of this area is at or below sea level. So flooding is sort of a given here.

I guess it's just my ignorance - I just felt that farther north, and east or west, the land was higher, and the lakes/rivers drained south. Call me stoooooopid! LOL

Kidding aside, I hope everyone is OK. It looks awful, from what I've read online and seen on the news.

By Colette on Wednesday, May 17, 2006 - 04:19 pm:

It is awful to us, because we don't usually flood up here - blizzards - yes, heatwaves - yes, "noreastahs" - yes. Floods like this? Not in the last 50 years. My home got flooded because of the brook in the back of my property. It turned into a small lake.

I can't wait to drag everything out of the basement tomorrow and start cleaning it all out.

By Karen~moderator on Wednesday, May 17, 2006 - 04:22 pm:

Colette, even if you did have flooding occasionally, or fairly often, it wouldn't make it any less awful, trust me. It will be awful just the same. Drying stuff out, and cleaning the mess up is NO fun, is it?
