More on the flood of 2013

Yesterday hubby and I took a drive out to see what the flood looked like - it was supposed to be cresting - whether it did or not I don't know yet, but it was certainly high enough.  There were places where I had never seen flood water before and roads that I don't ever remember being closed.
