    I was hoping to get some local shots here in Melbourne, FL of the flooding caused by T. S. Fay but I was prevented by road closures and roadblocks due to flooding.

    This is what most neighborhoods are dealing with after record high rainfall. This is a subdivision down the street from me.

    .... and still counting...I am hoping this thing will begin to move away tonight sometime. We have water seeping in at the foundation level and have been using our wet vac. So far this has been working:rolleyes: 
  6. Best wishes Trish. I was in the area about 3 weeks ago - so different from today.

  7. Hi Trish, glad to see you are doing ok.
    I was so hoping that storm would move a little faster and in a northern direction and spare the Florida folks the exceptional heavy rain. We in North Georgia could sure a few inches of that stuff if only it would blow this way.
    I just heard on the news that the storm is just sitting there in your area dumping even more rain. It is also reported the Fire Ants are pi##ed and the Gators or on the move.:eek:  DO BE CAREFUL!
  8. wow! Thats alot of water! I would be very interested to see more photos

    Hi Allen,
    Certainly not the same level of damage from a furious hurricane but many people have had to deal with their homes and properties flooding. I'm sure by next week the situation will be much better here.
  10. sorry, trish
    i grew up in ft. pierce
    it surely isn't pretty there

    i hope you guys get some relief soon
    weirdly.... it's hardly rained a drop in clearwater
    sorry about THAT, too

    Hi Darrell,

    We are doing fine. The rain has stopped for the past few hours so much of our immediate issues are cleared. Storm appears to finally be moving away from us:smile:
    I know you folks could certainly use the water; my brother was telling about your drought conditions in GA. He lives just outside of Atlanta.
    I have not seen gators roaming my neighborhood and the fire ants are ALWAYS pi**ed!!:biggrin:

    Hope you guys get some water soon and thanks for your concern:smile:

    Unfortunately, I was unable to get more photos. Travel on local streets was severely limited and I am in the middle of packing for our move so photography at the moment is bottom of my priority list. Trust me when I tell you this shot depicts many, many areas in our county.

    Thanks Greg,

    I'll take a tropical storm over a hurricane any day. Although there were a few tense moments when tornados were possible. We never lost power so it has been a great opportunity to have my husband home and get some packing done for our move.

    I am sure you guys haven't had a drop of rain over there:smile:Every last drop has been dumped here. The rain has stopped for the past few hours and hopefully it is gone!
  14. unfortunately, my daughter is starting high school
    and the freshman class has gone on a 2-day retreat to brooksville...
    it was already canceled once

    here's brooksville now:


  15. oh,
    and NO cell phones allowed
    so... we have to trust that she is OK

    Brooksville? What's to retreat to in Brooksville? :smile: I lived in Brooksville for a couple of years in the '80's. Unbeknownst to me, it was a real interesting place for a Yankee to move to. They were still fighting the Civil War. I chalked it up to experience. After about two years I retreated across the lines to the more Yankee-friendly Inverness, just up the road.

    Nice shot Trish. Unfortunatley, I did not have a problem finding flooded houses to take pictures of.:frown:
  18. Take care Trish, hopefully all is well with you.
