Flooded Atlanta :)

Monday, 2009-09-21, 5:30:
It has been raining on and off, intermittent with showers and thunderstorms, for six-seven days now. Different part of metro Atlanta are facing flood. Our backyard is a scene. Small streams are running everywhere and the pool is full of brown water, because of the mud entering pool!
There is a sewer opening right beside our house, and fortunately, it is still working, that is, not clogged by debris, etc. Some water entered house from around chimney, but so far inside house is pretty dry.
I am not sure if this situation can continue for another 5-6 days, as forecasts indicate!
It is going to be an unforgettable experience, something tells me :))

Things have been quiet for a couple of hours. We checked our neighborhood and there are not much damages, except for a few fallen trees. But the news we hear from other parts are not good.

Nothing new around here. Lots of power and water outages throughout metro area. We have to see about tomorrow!

As Lucy reflected on her outrageous behavior of the night before, the memory only served to draw her upward, like a flower toward the sun...
