Lots of Water - Before & After Pics

Like so many in Pennsylvania & NY, we got a ton of rain the last couple of days...over 4 inches around us...but much more to our south and east just a bit.  At the request of our meteorologist son, Drew, I took some before pictures of our stream/waterfalls, and then, when he and his wife came for lunch today, we took some after pictures.  Thought you would enjoy seeing the difference.  We were lucky and had nothing more than some seepage in the basement, and the sump pump did run a lot during the night.  From what we saw at the creek, the water was about 2 feet higher than when we went down to take pictures.   

  I'll be back tomorrow with a special announcement!  Gotta go fix dinner for my starving Mr. Whimzie. 


  1. Amazing how fast flood waters will appear and
    move in dry steams and river beds...
    Keep safe... thanks for sharing and keep us
    update...thoughts and prayers ...

    Warm Blessings

    I am SO glad to read you, your family and your home are safe ~ my heart breaks for those around you and elsewhere in PA and NY who are facing flooding and evacuation. I can only fearfully imagine the emotions that encircle a forced departure from ones home.....
