Waterfront property

I've always wanted to live on water. Ocean, lake, stream - any of those would do. Today I thought my wish was coming true. We had a deluge which overwhelmed the drains. This is the street in front of our house. (click photos for larger view)

That's our next door neighbor's mail box. There really is a sidewalk and driveway there next to the mailbox, honest.

A view of our neighbors across the 'pond.'

The drains on the golf course behind us were clogged and the water backed up into the yard.

Jerry got a rake out and did his best to clear the drain.

It might be too hard to see but the house behind him here had water lapping against the foundation.

It took several hours for the water to subside so our time owning waterfront property was short lived.

Columbia had massive amounts of rain too. You would not believe that we have been in drought status for the past few years. Glad you didn't float away.

You didnt tell us you had to canoe out to come to the meeting Sat. This is one of the perks of living in the low county. Yes, I grew up down here.

Whoa! That's a lot of water. And now I hear it's hot hot hot.
