Pretty cold, and muddy. Supposed to get all the way down to 44 degrees tonight. :stir:
If they were singing in December, that's probably not a good sign.It was chilly when I got to Florida on the 23rd. 44 that night, high of 67. By the end of the week it was 88. I got home Sunday night and it poured right after I got inside the house. Rained like crazy yesterday and windy-windy. It was 68 for a high. 80% of my yard was under water. That doesn't normally happen. The froggies and peepers were singing!
Walt, you have been to my house. I actually have water standing in my front yard..........water standing on a slope, who would of thunk!I-24 is shut down. Mudslide. They evacuated the Opryland hotel last night. Too close to the Cumberland river. There is a damn they are going to pen the flood gates on and down stream is going to get it. 30-40mph winds........... I was planning on going to a pistol class today. Unless they call it off, I'm going.
The French drain around the foundation is obviously at the saturation point and the water has nowhere to go. The water is dammed up against the house. You can not walk in the front yard without sinking up in the clay. The dry ditches on both sides of the house are at capacity, and Ginger Creek, the little creek that runs through my bottom that is maybe a foot deep and you can jump across? It's about 20 feet wide now. Don't know how deep, but you can hear the water rushing from the house.Does that mean you have 20ft of water in the back? I remember it dropped off...........
