Someone asked me if we've been affected by the flooding here, so in case anyone else is interested...
The floods happened north of us. But it was geography, not luck, that "saved us".
Water flows away from us, not toward us. We aren't by a river, flood plain, or anything like that. We are on a hill.
Now we are in the country, so we were inconvenienced (gravel driveway has some ruts in it from erosion, we'll probably need to buy/spread more gravel, the land is completely saturated and muddy with pools everywhere, etc.) but at least the land does drain whatever water it gets.
It's hard to complain about standing water and muddy land when some people have had their houses washed away!
We get 2 "rivers" when it rains hard -- one in the front yard, and one in the back. The backyard one cuts off our house from our garage/storage building out back. Like I said, an inconvenience, but a temporary one. After ? hours, the runoff subsides to a trickle. Even during the worst rains (such as on Monday) the "river" was only 6 inches deep, so a person could wade across it, as long as you were barefoot. Though the flow of the river did manage to float/move some 12 foot long 2x4's I had placed across the backyard for a makeshift sidewalk.
The neighbor's man-made pond, which is 1 acre in size and 17 feet deep at its deepest point mostly filled up just this spring! We got a lot of rain this year.
And to think that most years we would have a drought!
