My backyard

In the photo on the bottom  is my bulkhead with the front side of Irene blowing all the water out. A drop in the water level of 4 plus feet. The picture on top is my back yard after the back side of Irene brought in a thick layer of marsh grasses combined with scrap lumber and all things not nailed down. Within 2 hours the water rose almost 11'! I got 3 feet of water in my garage. At one point during the night I lifted the cover on a vent in my floor and it was full of water.  The next morning there were fish swimming in the low spots of my yard. We dodged the bullet....again.
