WOW! Have you seen what Tropical Storm Debbie Is Doing to Florida?
10 or more inches of rain have dropped over parts of Florida in just a few hours and the tropical storm named Debbie is tearing up Florida. One day a major Hurricane is going to destroy Florida. I was just watching it on TV and its something else. Maybe we will get some of the rain from it up here in NC. We could use the rain. What do you think about Tropical Storm Debbie? If you live down there tell us about it.
I've lived here for a long time and haven't seen flooding like this ever in my area. My street and yard turned into lakefront property. It was scary looking out the window and seeing approaching water. My pool overflowed and water was leaking into my family room off the patio. I found wood beams to block the water from entering the covered patio while my oldest son went through living 'hell' to get to my house to help hook up a drain hose. He walked down our street in waist high water. I saw kayaks, people walking to their homes, even the ducks sounded distressed. One of the causes of severe flooding was the hard ground. We have been in drought conditions and the ground couldn't absorb the water at the rate it was falling. Here is a picture from my front door at it's worst. Now the water is gone from my street, but there are many flooded areas and destroyed cars and damaged homes. I've been through hurricanes that didn't cause this much flooding.

Just heard that West Central Florida may get hit by a tropical storm early next week. We may have to evacuate, so if you don't see me here, you'll know I'm hiding out!
