I am writing this from a safe location, i.e., someplace that isn't flooded, unlike my neighborhood right now.
Yep, Irene got me.
As of eleven this morning, when Little Girl and I headed for the hills, we had gotten over four inches of rain. The creek made it all the way across the park and into my side yard, and that's when I decided to split.
From what I understand, the street in front of my house flooded, but there were no evacuations, so I'm hoping ... well, I'm hoping. My garage is at grade level, but the house is itself is up eighteen inches on a crawlspace, so ... I'm hoping.
I'll kept you posted as I can, but I probably won't have internet access again until sometime tomorrow, so don't worry if you don't hear anything right away.
Talk to you soon.
