    That's pretty amazing! We have some areas nearby that flood several times a year. I know several kids had to use a raft to get to school a few years ago. Once or twice the water has prevented us from getting to the nearest large town, but I don't think I've seen flooding like yours often!

    Wow, Paul, after looking at those pictures it's amazing to think just a couple of hours north I've hardly seen any rain. Seeing that you said you "came within inches... of a lot of damage," does this mean the flood levels are now receding?

    Paul, sorry to see this. I hope the situation is much improved by now, but the clean up is going to take a lot of work. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Update: water is receding slowly, there will be a mess to clean up, but very little real damage to structures. At the peak of flow there was nearly 18" of water in my Nepenthes house! I was able to keep it heated (propane) without any difficulty and nothing was damaged. I don't think the plants even noticed!

    It will be days before I can leave the farm, by the look of things; there is a half mile wide field to cross to get to the main road, and that is still a raging torrent three to four feet deep this morning.

    I appreciate the well wishes!

    18" in the greenhouse is insanity! I'd put that place on pedestals and make it my own Venice.
    How long does a tank of propane last you? Ours is huge, just in case we get snowed in.
