(Ignoring all the construction in the foreground, there is a creek behind the trees in the back ground.)
Now is a roaring river like this
There is a pine tree in both above pictures on the very far left. And is a good point of reference as to how high the water is.
Most of this picture is our neighbor's yard. The white poll in the middle is an umbrella that they have on their brick patio.
The brick wall is the property line between our yards. There is about 2 inches of water over the side walk down there.
And it is still raining...
We have several more feet to go before we have to worry about the water reaching our house, and we are very thankful for our sump pump (which has been running every 5 minutes all night long!!).
But we are praying that the rain stops soon...
