Post-Isaac

I thought you all might be interested to see the follow-up pictures of Hurricane Isaac here--we were SO blessed to be safe and sound and sustain no damage really at all from the storm. Driving around now, we are amazed at the homes that actually flooded and the number of trees that fell. We only dealt with a couple of days with no electricity and some water standing high in the yard. The amount of rainfall was QUITE impressive.
 This is the side view of my yard from my front porch. I think you can see the butterfly bush in the close foreground, and that fence is the pool area fence.
 We were so glad to have moved the chicken coop up onto the front yard slope! They would NOT have been happy hens if they had gone "sailing" around the yard!
 Our road was covered;this is the view toward the other side. Our driveway and our neighbors' across the road were covered. This was taken after it stopped raining on the last day(Thursday).
Our neighbors across the road were REALLY concerned about their house. The water stopped short, thankfully. Their entire yard was flooded for hours.

We had to use the big truck to get home from spending the night at my in-laws' house on Wednesday night. They had portable AC units to run from their generator. :) You can also see the plastic sandbox(chicken playpen?)floated up to the fence. 

There was a LOT of water! We think about 16 inches in our side yard.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for all the sweet well-wishes. Y'all are so kind!

We are very, very thankful. Please keep those who didn't fare so well in your prayers. Many whose homes flooded this time did NOT have flood insurance.
