The river rising after the storm.
Good news. The power came on around 2 pm yesterday. We thought t was going to be Friday before it was restored. What a surprise and a blessing. The house was getting hot. I was carrying a stand up fan around with me from room to room, finding a plug that would work with the generator.
Today we are getting more storms. We will have to keep an eye on the dock and pontoon boat in the river since the water is still very high.
We live high up and on the other side of the road from the river. It is about 50 stair steps to get to it usually. The river is about halfway up the steps right now. It rose around 12 feet.
It has never flooded where I live on the street. It floods at both ends of the street, which are much lower and closer to the water. Our bigger threat is from the canal behind us. But that has never overflowed in the 35 years we have lived here.
I have already done 7000 steps this morning in the house an plan on doing a strength training video with my trainer this afternoon.
I hope you all have a wonderful;l day.
