Notes From The Swale
This photo (courtesy of my friend, Deena the Poet) was taken at the Chic-fil-A restaurant here on Wednesday when the remnants of Hurricane Fay came through. We had close to 10 inches of rain in all -- that's six-lane Innes Street behind them, not a lake.
The dh and I had some tense moments because, when the water suddenly began to rise, our grandbaby was visiting her other grandparents at the motel between this Chic-fil-A and the interstate highway you can see in the background -- where the deepest water is.
I'm happy to say the water has receded and all is well -- and my granddaughter now knows a lot more about floods and their precipitous nature than she did on Tuesday.
