Updated photo Friday morning of our neighbors dock from previous blog...

Kids were out of school today ...again! This was their first week and they only attended on Monday and Thursday. They really wanted to go to school too if you ask them. Today there is so much flooding in the areas around us that they just figured it would be safer not to send them. Our home is in a great place compared to some in our neighborhood for flooding issues. Don't get me wrong we could have flooding issues, but we are better off than some.

We have leaked! We have a leak in our big window over the pool area. We 'jimmy-rigged' it for now until the rain stops so we can figure out how to fix it and where it's coming from.

More updated pictures of the lake waters...

This is a very large dock (was) for those who were here on the 4th of July it's the dock that had the fireworks.

Our swale

Scott got a new drainage hose for our pool pump. When he returned from work he got to 'work' on that job. He drained about 4 inches out. (by morning it was 1.5 inches from the top tile again)

Saving the paddle was too heavy to fly away, but not if the waters rise under it and pull it out into the lake. Our neighbor (whom we hadn't met yet..Dave) rain out in all his glory ..swim trunks and gold medallion around his neck.. and helped us pull it up and dump out the water. We'll have to bring it to our yard another day!
