This afternoon Gerri and I were sitting in our recliners reading some blogs and we heard a LOUD boom of thunder. We knew this wasn’t going to be good. All of a sudden we started to hear and see the rain coming down, and it just got harder and harder.
The winds picked up, we lost power and the rains got even harder. We had about 4 inches of rain in a little less than hour.
Outside our patio was under water, the road was blocked by branches and heavy piles of leaves and pine straw, we had creeks going all through the campground and parts of the asphalt roads eroded with the rush of water. The gravel going into many sites from the asphalt washed away in several places that an RV could not get into the spots if they wanted to. WOW! What a storm.
Within another hour the rains had gone, the sun started to slightly shine and the winds were calm. Boy was the campground a mess! We have NEVER seen the lake this full … it had overflowed its banks in many areas.
I went down to the roads in the campground and cleared all the limbs and stuff that had literally piled up on the road so people could drive thru the campground and then I noticed the road erosion from the gush of water. While Gerri manned the campground, I went to the maintenance shop and picked up several orange cones to put out where the road and gravel had washed out. I wouldn’t want a car or rv to possibly turn over. The hard rains and gushing water was enjoyed by our ducks. It temporarily formed a “creek” and the ducks played in it and swam from there into the lake.
Our new weather radio worked really well until we lost power and I had forgotten to put batteries in it. I guess I needed the book on explaining weather radios and batteries for dummies.
All is okay and Life is Good. Thanks for stopping by.
