Our Neighborhood After Irene
Around 9:30 AM this morning, "The Italian" and I ventured out in the light rain and wind to walk around and look at the flooding and damage. We live on top of a hill about 4 blocks from one of the local city parks. Here are lots of pictures!!
First look...not bad
Hazards you don't think about
First look at the park...all of the pictures of the park are flash flooding and you can see in a lot of the pictures how much the water had already receded.
Water around a sculpture
Lots of these around the area
this is normally a grassy area
here you can see the tiny bridge for the tiny creek that caused all this flooding
in 30 minutes the water had receded back quite a bit from this sculpture
a block and a half down our street
this is what happens when you have your side walks replaced and they cut the roots to the trees!
They were very lucky!
I am doing a separate post on the gardens after Irene.
