flood waters!

I may have a bit of a problem posting for several days since I am considering leaving here. As you can see from the photos, my street has collapsed! I was awakened by the sound of rushing water shortly after 4am and a loud buzzing from the basement........there is more than a foot of water down there. The street was a raging river but the water has receeded now leaving what you see above. I am packing an emergency bag & art supplies just in case.

Oh Patricia,
So sorry. I saw your street on the news.I live over in Warwick and we are in the middle of a bunch of street closures. I worked all day yesterday pumping water into a shop vac to save my basement. I will miss your posts. Keep safe.

I won't be long.......I actually was able to paint for most of the afternoon today. The basement (which rose to knee level) isn't quite as bad as I thought. Good luck with your basement and don't go to the mall. I don't like to admit this but I was a little scared yesterday!
