A Few Feet of Fay

We finally have power and internet back here on Lonesome Pine. Tonight's post will be short (as if you really believe I can actually HAVE a short post!). I'll post more about our Fay adventure tomorrow. We are all safe, dry and have power and internet --what more could we ask?

Here are a few pictures showing what Fay left us with --after more than 20" of rain. So far, we've been unable to leave our neighborhood in anything but a tractor. As we speak, Mr. Fix-It is playing on a tractor --TRYING-- to get things where folks can go to work tomorrow.

Bex has been safe at a friend's home since FRIDAY... so I'm having MAJOR problems with the fact we haven't been able to get out to pick her up. She may have to just walk through the mud to get home to her mommy...before mommy loses her mind!!!

Saturday night...I wish you could see how deep and fast this water was running.

This used to be a road, now it's a ditch.

Saturday NIGHT. Look at the fence posts.
The water was already 6"-12" deep.

Sunday MORNING. Can you see the very tops of the fence posts? I haven't been down to see how high it is this afternoon.

How about driving through this little pot hole?

Maybe a little bit of mud-bogging?

Life is good at Lonesome Pine. Always an adventure!

Stay tuned!

WoW! I hope you don't float away with all that water and I hope your baby does get home soon. I know, she's too big to be called a baby, but really, aren't they ALWAYS our babies?? Stay dry! Amazing pictures.

Wow! Great pictures. It will be so nice to have Bex home! Were you at least able to keep in touch with her via phone?

WoW!!! Great pictures, so are you guys stuck at home or can you get out??

We got it bad but fortunately our river bed sandy road has up to now been really good at absorbing all the water.

take care!!!

So glad you are safe! And, yes, you were missed.

Joan said...

And you say that isn't bad?!

Glad you are all well!
We managed to stay pretty dry, our house sits on a hill. But going out was out of the question...LOTS of trees down just up the road!! And oh my goodness, the water.

We kept power for all but about 40 mins. Praise God!!

Kelsey said...

Oh my goodness that is a TON of rain! Did it flood your house??

WOW, I've lived in Hurricane country before, but I've never seen a road washed out like that before! Talk about a RUT!

Glad you guys are all safe and dry. Hope you get the girl back soon!
