A river runs through it
Thursday, 08 Sep 11 Storms 22°C / 72°F
What a morning. My hot water heater and furnace are under water. My basement has 18" of water and even with a 2" pump running all night. There’s a river about 2" deep x 15 feet wide running at 5 mph right through the middle of my garden, My greenhouse has three inches of water on the floor. Two of our local grocery stores are closed with 3" of water in the aisles. Twenty years ago I was one of the volunteers that had to remove fish from inside the stores and the parking lots. We rescued carp that were 40" long and huge numbers of Salmon. It may be another one like that with 7 more days of rain forecast. Oh… and my Root Cellar is in tough shape. I emptied everything out a couple of days ago so at least my food preserves are OK.
My raised beds have turned into arks, with the only thing keeping them from washing away are rooted plants. I’m up on a hill, so the town is in deep trouble.
