Re: Best Home Yet

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. I used "your" as in "having the use of" - as in "your" train station, "your" highway exit, "your" hotel room, etc . . . .

edit: Whoops. When replying, I forgot there IS a train station on the farm.

Nope, you're still crazy. Best to stay that way!

Re: Best Home Yet

The Flood.

Over seven inches of rain fell in three hours last night.

I gathered all the photos, and arranged them in a comprehensive manner.

You will see, before and after pics.

In one picture you will see the driveway when it has not been raining. On the right hand side of the tree you will see a swing chair. When the flood was passing through, the water was over the top of that swing.
That means that the water was over six feet at the concrete portion of the driveway.

Take notice of the grain trailer which is on the other side of the foot bridge. The tires of that trailer are two feet tall.

Ordinarily, I would have parked on that side of the foot bridge. Had I done that, I would have been under a foot and a half of water.

Also, keep in mind that the bus is fifty feet from the stream. The banks of the stream are normally three to four feet high.

Today, the water has receded. I expect to be able to cross the stream tomorrow.

Here are some before and after pics.

Re: Best Home Yet

I usually park near the foot bridge near that grain trailer. The water was two feet deep there.
