TROPICAL STORM DEBBY
Debby dumped 15 inches of rain on us yesterday, for awhile my front and back yard looked like a lake but the water has gone down at our house this morning. We have friends who are having to move furniture up on blocks or remove from their homes because the water is still rising where they live. We needed rain, a lot of the lakes around here are drying up but we did not need this much this fast! A lot of people are still without electricity in the county. Ours never stayed off more than 1 hr. at the time but was off and on all day yesterday and last night. I actually cooked on my gas stove by candle light. So thankful there was no loss of life and that we faired as well as we did through this storm and praying that the water will recede before property is lost. Having lived on the coast all my life, we have seen much worse than this by Mother nature but it is always a little scary.
