the part with the floods

So my dad has a really short commute.  Like less than 10 minutes.  When the hurricane hit on Thursday (the 8th) it took him over an hour and a half to get home.  There were so many roads blocked off, people would drive down one, only to be turned away because of flooding and roads washed out.  it was CRAZY!  here are my photos to prove it:

because I missed the memo of taking BEFORE pictures I don't have any.  But where my sister is standing is the beginning of where you can hop across the stream river and make it safely to the other side.  Not so now!  There was a little boy her same age (same town too) who lost his life in the flood.  A word to the wise: don't get in past your ankles because A. you don't know where the end is and B. the current might be just strong enough to sweep you downstream....a bad thing indeed.

This little bridge was once over a VERY TINY trickle of water and as you can see, the water moved the bridge and is a trickle no more....

So there you have it.  flooding.
