Flood Update 4-25-11

This is the sign they have put up on the road to where we live. There is so many people using trailers , uhauls or anything they can to get their stuff by the river to higher ground. Luckily, we live on top of a hill in Utica so even the '37 flood didnt reach the top of our hill.The water is expected to rise another 4-6 inches before Wednesday. Alot of people store their stuff up here in a flood. Here are pictures from around the town where I live.
 These pictures I took of us riding around seeing how high the water had gotten.

Water, water,water and guess what ....MORE water!!


Here in Southern Indiana we have had severe weather and rain since Wednesday night. Here in Utica the flooding starts from in the center then meets with the River..BAM. You've got soggy houses.
Today we ran some errands and at about 5p.m and we came home to about an inch of water thoughout our basement due to our malfunctioning sump pump! But thank God a couple of church guys where coming over to spend "guy time" with my Dad and helped wet-vac the water up. Luckily the water was just rain water so it wasn't nasty gunky water of the Ohio River.

And since its been raining buckets for a couple days our garden has been quite soggy. As I was trying to retrieve some buckets to help with the basement, THIS is what happended:
I was so stuck my sister Sierra had to literally pull yank me from the mud's suction. It was quite a funny site. The mud was up to my ankles and I couldn't lift them out. =)

I think Ping is the only one that is truly thrilled with this weather.( Although Mom and myself are true weather lovers..)

I guess one more won't hurt too much..

We added a baby duck to the mix! A few days ago a family I babysit for was given a duck someone bought at a farm store. Which after they were given this duck their dog tried to eat it, so they asked if we wanted it. I don't know about your family but if someone asks if we want a cute duck,we usually say YES! =)
I promise to post pictures as soon as possible!
