We are alive and well. The Eye of the storm passed over us around 9AM, but there was not much here in the way of wind. I have been in the cellar bailing out the water. The neighbor has directed his drains towards our property. We never had much of a problem before, but now I have to bail every time it rains. It is time for a sump pump.
I filled a 5 gallon bucket 20 times so far and it has brought the water down a couple of inches and I will go down and do another 100 gallons as soon as I get a little rest.
Bardonia road is closed because the Germonds Creek has overflowed its banks and is a foot above the bridge. The backed up water broke out of Bardonia road onto Germonds Road as I watched, and now the road in front of the house has two feet of water. Idiots keep trying to make it though and there are a bunch of stalled cars up and down the street.
The only trees down were way in the back near the cemetery. They were Elm trees. Elms are rare since Dutch Elm disease. These were diseased and went over in the rain and wind. I am sorry to see them go.
The bees are all in good shape. I put cinder blocks on the top of them to hold them down. The back yard has several inches of water. The ground is saturated so it is tough to walk around the yard.
