Flood of 2010

Well after a sleepless night because of Addyson being scared of the storms did not go to bed till 3:30 and we were up at 5:50 Saturday morning to tornado warnings and flood warnings. Whenever it rains the creek next to our house occasionally will overflow and fill our yard. The farthest it has ever been is up to the tree in our front yard. At about 7:00 it was beginning to get closer and closer to our home. We knew then that it was time to get out of there or we would never make it out. We gathered our pictures and our computer (that is loaded with pictures since Jimmy and I have been married) and got out. When we got to the top of the driveway the water was over the top of our stairs and there was rocking chairs, trash and logs floating in our front yard. When we went to leave the roads were closed all around us and were not able to leave our road. We went to some friends house from church and were so thankful for opening up their home to us. About 12:00pm we were able to leave and get to Jimmy's parents house.

Jimmy went back over to the house with his dad to find that the water had only got underneath the house and up over the heating and air unit. So thankful that is all the farther it went. I can't imagine how the people feel that lost their home in this flood. I praise God for watching over us and our home.
