Hurricane Joaquin paid our fair city a visit this past weekend and drowned most of the city in more water than has been seen in a VERY long time. We were very lucky not to incur any damage. I can only assume this is because it’s an area with new construction because we are only a 5 minute walk to the water and even closer to the marsh. Some of our friends in the older parts of the neighborhood have “nature-made” swimming pools in their back yards. Our local lake even overflowed, which was quite a sight to see.
Here are photos of the kiddos puddle jumping on Monday, the day after we got the most rain.
This was the extent of our flooding.
We are very lucky considering downtown looks like this:

Today the sun is shining and the temperatures have risen again to a “crisp” (at least to Southerners) 72 degrees.
We continue to pray for our neighbors and those who are affected by the flood. If you’re interested in donating, the Red Cross is aiding those in need.
