WABE": Georgia's Historic Preservation Division Director to Retire

Pizmo and the Aftermath.....
Again, it was a great time and we want to thank everyone that pitched in to help. Without everyone, the dogs could have easily taken over the pool and sent us humans running. No one wants to see a Planet of The Dogs! Now we move on to next weekend....Neighborhood Yard Sale!

We were lucky….very lucky. We only received about an inch of water in our basement and maybe six inches or so of water in our crawl space. This water was not from the flooded creek, but simply from water draining down the slope in our backyard. With all the rain we had been having the ground was saturated and the water had no place to go and crept into our basement. Nothing some hard work and a wet-dry vac couldn’t fix. The fans are still going in our backroom and crawlspace, continuing to dry everything out.
However, our neighbors directly across the street from us woke up to at least three feet of water in their homes. I really do not have words to describe what we saw, and pictures can only begin to show what happened. The following photos are taken mostly from our front yard and our street. Other views from around Northcrest can be viewed on the Northcrest Modern Blog.
I cannot even imagine what neighbors are facing and what they have lost. If there is anything we can do to help, please just knock on our door.

So, here are some pictures of the front yard from mid-summer that we took on a warm and sunny afternoon. Maybe they will help brighten your day on yet another dreary day here in Georgia. We had spent the day adding mulch to our front island and trimming the dogwood a bit. It was a fun day and those of you in our part of Northcrest will remember it as it was the day of the unofficial pool party which brought in all of the cars parked along Regalwoods and other streets. Guests walking by were looking at us working in the front yard like we were crazy!
We also found out that the vanity was put down first, and then the floor tiles around it. Luckily for us when we moved in, there was a box of left over floor tiles in the basement backroom. The odd thing we found out was there are two layers of these generic vinyl tiles, one on top of the other. This translates to more work one day when we get to rip up the floor in the basement and put something else in….I can’t wait!
