Flood Day 16

The water continues to drop. It is 7 1/2 feet deep in the road now….never thought I’d be glad to say that!

Here is the road and “mailbox” view for today.

Our driveway.

You can walk next to the yardstick we stuck out in the field at this point. It is amazing that it is still there with all the current we had.

Mike checking our mail :-)

Yes, now we can see our non-existent “mailbox”….at least the post! The entire cross piece is gone with the box.

As we walked up to the road this morning, there were several Great Blue Herons right in the road, but they flew off before I was close enough for a photo. A little later, I was able to capture these 2.

We have been pumping our well pit since Friday evening. Mike did it every hour for 2 days(I was gone to Bloomington). Sunday night we put a fountain pump in the pit and were able to stretch it to 1 and 1/2 hours between pumping. I took the night schedule until 3:30a.m. so Mike could sleep in the bed for a while, then I go to sleep later. Monday night(last night) we were able to go 2 hours between pumping, and today it has seemed to slow immensely. We still have the fountain pump running continuously. If we can stretch 4 or 5 hours between pumping, just think of the sleep we can get!!!!!

Still hoping to be open Sunday May 15, 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Late Night rescheduled for Friday  May 20, 8p.m. to midnight
