Update, Part 2

You have got to see these pictures to get AN IDEA of how bad it got. And remember, this is after the rain stopped, so it was even worse than pictured! The rivers are still rising. Lots of curfews and boil water advisories. Scary stuff.

Ugh, that is going to be such a mess to clean up! I hope that water goes away fast! I was telling my friend Emilie that we get lots of rain here in the summer, but a flood never even enters my mind. We had 3 or 4 inches of rain outside our door a few days ago, but the minute it stopped raining, the water was gone. The ground just soaked it right up!

Crazy! Reminds me of the flood in Nashville last year - on one hand things seem to get fixed up amazingly fast, but on the other, there are still homes here that haven't been fixed, etc. so the effects go on for years...I'm sorry PA has to go through that!! :(

Yeah, it's really sad now to drive around and see everyone's curbs piled high with ruined furniture, boxes, TVs, etc. Such a shame . . .

Oh, forgot to mention -- yes, the lasting effect . . . homes, businesses, etc. There are roads that will be closed until March and, because of that, traffic can't get to some of the businesses, so there's a big economic impact, too. So so sad.

WOW! So glad that you guys dodged the bullet. Seems like it will really have a lasting effect on the area though.
