this is my north yard as of last Friday (4/19) around 430pm.
THIS is how it fills up. the water started coming over at about 930pm & by the next morning, we had this
more importantly, Sunday we were seeing the bulk of the water & realized getting The Monsters in & out was going to be more difficult than in years past. at 11 1/2 Cookie is not having the kayak ride anymore & Baxter is just so completely freaked out that it's not worth the trouble. so off to Tucker's we went to retrieve the john boat. and off to Bass Pro nacho went to buy a new trolling motor because we foolishly gave our old one to my sis thinking "ahhh we'll never use this thing!" we are mental giants are we not! but boxers can only hold it so long, so big thank you's to Barry for taking the kids on a bathroom break for us Sunday!
later that day i decided to check out the garage & get to those hard to reach places while i have the chance!
my side sits the lowest at about 8ft. at this point (Sunday) we still had at least another foot of water to expect. i'd love to give you an updated photo, but i can't even duck to get in there now! and apologies for the blurry photo here; it's hard to get a good photo in the waves & manage not to bang your head on the ceiling!
fortunately, Nacho's side sits a little higher than mine so we have less to worry about on his side.
and on the outside, it looks like this
and again, this was Sunday, so it's come up another 1ft+ by now (Tues).
and i know you are all wondering how we do it, so you will be glad to know, we are coping just fine!
just wait though, as soon as the temps come up & the wind dies down, we'll break out the chiminea & a new Floody Mary recipe!
