I may lose power today..My goodness the storms that are coming are terrible, hail, lightning, flooding and toados. I have never seen a storm of this magnitude last so long. It has been relentless since 3am.My husband just left to check on my brother in law who lives in our other home. Of course that home was flooded about 15 years ago as we are 2 blocks from a lake, so we are worried we have not heard from him this moing. We know he does not have power so that may be why we havent heard from him. And he refuses to get a cell phone. It has been pitch black all moing, non stop rain and we are watching our neighbors yard become a small lake right in the middle where there is a dip in the land. We have great drainage. My husband just called and said that there are downed trees in the neighborhood and one is sitting right on the roof of a home. Not good. He said the streets are flooded and he has had to take 2 detours to get out of the neighborhood. We live in a large wooded subdivision and everyone has an acre to 5 acres of land. With lots of trees. When we built our home, we made sure the house was clear of trees on 3 sides of the house. We already had a huge large silver oak, break from lightning and a branch pierced the roof of our other home. That was during a hurricane about 8 years ago. We are being pummeled at the moment…Stay tuned…lol

Here are some photo's of the side of our home, the back coer of our home and looking out the front door..All the water drains into the preserve. Thank God!! The rain let up a little for me to go out and take pics. But you can see the little lake forming in my neighbors side yard. The 2 trees in the forefront belong to us. Our property line is behind those trees . As long as the little lake stays on that side of our trees, I will be happy!!March 31, 2011 at 4:00 pm #99146
Tina is 20 minutes north of me. I will call her to see how they weathered the storm.March 31, 2011 at 4:21 pm #99147March 31, 2011 at 4:41 pm #99148March 31, 2011 at 4:52 pm #99145
