We’re Still Here! Update on The Ohio River.

Its day seven of flood watch here in Boehnerville and we’re still hanging in there at the house. The  Ohio has overflown it’s banks and has risen to 53.75 feet. There is plenty more rain and maybe some snow in the forecast, so we may have to clear out sometime over the weekend. My partner is planning on grabbing the camera today and getting some pics, so I may have some images to share later this evening. There were plenty of gawkers and thrill seekers driving around the neighborhood last night to see what happens when Mother Nature decides to get pissed off. At some point in the evening we heard what sounded like a cannon go off last night, but we have no clue what it was.We joined the neighbors outside to investigate but couldn’t see a damn thing because of the rain and fog. I asked a long time resident when we should run like hell, and she responded with “At 65 feet your house is toast.”  I hate soggy toast. Stay tuned!

    Yeah, soggy! At 65 feet we could go swimming in our living room! I’d prefer not. I have no armband floaters, no snorkel. Damn groundhog.
