This gives you some idea of how much water is moving through the area

I spent a lot of time in Whitakers NC back in the 90's. I think it was Fran that hit us the worse...Floyd cost more lives, 35 or there about, but Fran wiped us out. We had 4-5 ft standing water everywhere and the swamp just couldn't drink it all. The waters were deep enough, long enough that we lost every tractor and every trailer at the YTL Yard and we weren't alone...all those houses destroyed, all that lost life.
It's heartbreaking when this type stuff happens. You'd think the older one got the easier news like this would be to deal with..

I'm glad you made it AJ, Geoff, and any of the other BoBs out there.
I don't have much more to say on the matter.

Your kind remarks are much appreciated. I remember Floyd and Fran and all the destruction that that caused so much grief. Today people are once again suffering from the destruction and from the loss of life. The death toll from Hurricane Mathew in NC has now reached 24. Some have died while trying to save others. Some rivers are still rising and won't crest before Saturday. New locations are being flooded and more and more people are being forced from their homes and businesses. Raw sewage has contaminated much of the flood waters making them very dangerous to anyone that comes in contact with them. However heroic acts are becoming commonplace but that's not surprising, good neighbors are treasured like family in NC. Smile
