Ah yes the forlorn mushrooms ... I must say though that looking our the window and seeing the road disappear under the water surging over the road was a shock. Instead of hoping the water wouldn't reach us ( it really couldn't have as the house was at a much higher elevation) I grabbed my camera to go and "take a look" ... probably not the safest thing to do with flooding water. Charlie and a neighbor pulled a lot of large parts of trees our of the road as the water began to subside.

thanks for the fave Norm.

I can imagine! I see people building in flood plains all the time and I wonder what is going through their minds! This video always impressed me!

I grew up driving through standing water, but I'd sure stay away from the moving water! A buddy of mine drove across a flooded bridge once. He made it, but he was really lucky the bridge still had a floor!
