Blog is back!
This is a typical morning near where I live. Note how low the ground is. Tides with this storm were 3 to 4 feet above normal and so there is a lot of damage in the low-lying areas of our county. It is the largest county in the state -- 640 square miles -- and has a total population of less than 30,000. So we are pretty spread out here.
Anyway, the power is back on. Again. And we are grateful... Shelly had no water in the house, though the roads were submerged. My house is a good 6 feet above sea-level and we've never had and tide water. Rain water was six inches deep in the back yard, though.
With no electric, the well lost it's prime. So the water isn't safe to drink and we have no water at all in the kitchen, but Rog is working on it with the help of our sons.
All in all we have been blessed. Hope all of you are okay!
