Lake property doesn't always mean what you think it means!!!
"Hay, guys welcome to my "lake home"...
"Won't you please come in, I'll give you a little tour"...
"Thirsty anyone?" Luckily Mom filled my trough just before the storm hit"
Good thing cause the neighbors troughs floated away, being full mine stayed put.
"Yep no matter what goes on around me, give me foods and I be happy"
Mom had to get creative an hang my hay up high though.
"We even be offering boat rides here" Notice Margeaux (who's foot is all better) she's planning to board the
muck bucket boat as it floats by...
Maizee finds a high spot on one of the four bales of hay that came out alive! The other hays were all floating. Take not, none of this stuff was close together, it floated that way. See the saddle stand? It had my new saddle on it. Luckily it got wedged between the hay and a crate so it didn't tip over, so it be saved "WHEW"...
Just in case you didn't know this...when you poops in deep water it does float!!!
We've gotten wet befores but, never like this not ever!!!
I'm wondering just how do ducks know when/where lakes form so quickly?
Yesterday we think will be deemed as "THE FLOOD OF 2012" around here.
Take note that these pics were all taken "after" the water had receded quite a bit, it was indeed a lot higher. Luckily Mom had come home from working on the new place to clean my room, the storm hit just as she finished. Oh, yeah a pic of my room please...
You can see from the water lines how it's receded here. Of course Dad was out of town for the party! Always seems to be that way, does he plan it I wonder?
The power went out for way long time, AND the generator decided this was a good time to freeze up to boot. Coarse we didn't have it as bad as others. Our Chris is a Fireman and was out helping peoples thru the storms. They'd been on an accident call when it hit in a low area, the floods began immediatly. They had to load up the uninjured accident peoples to take them to high ground. On the way they came upon stopped traffic. As they began to turn to complete their voyage a call came thru for assistance. The assistance was for a car just in front of them, small kids was in it and it was taking in water. They lefted their vehicle and peoples being transported to pull the peoples n kids out. Carried them to their vehicle, loaded them up with the other peoples then began their voyage to high ground again. They picked up lots more peoples on the way. It took over an hour to make it to their high ground destination when it shoulda been like 10 minutes. Once that was accomplished they had to help other peoples out of their homes and places of work via boats!!! Yep, you read that right! Chris said the waters were waist deep, a factory had thirty peoples trapped inside that had to be evacuated out via the boats another department broughted them.
Yeah, to all Fire Peoples!
In the mean time this morning, the waters lefted my barn. Mom didn't stall me, so's I wouldn't feel trapped and just in case another storm came thru in the night. Dad'll be home tonight and will most likely have to take the day off to get all the ruined hay out and help Mom clean up the barn. Mom's getting ready to head to the new place now to check on it. Rumor has it funnel clouds was spotted there!!!
