Many of my plants are under water
My dog Bear exploring the water's edge.
I have never seen anything like this, look at the water on the floor.
water has flooded my shade house
Many shorter palms are now under water, I am worried for my island if this continues.
Last night it rained heavily the WHOLE night into the morning and it is still raining. I spent the night mopping and shovelling up water off my laundry room and downstairs bathroom floors. One of the gutters in the laundry room was blocked and had overflowed. At one stage was so overwhelmed that I almost gave up. Luckily whatever was blocking the gutter shifted and the inside deluge stopped. I then had to scoop up water off the floor and mop. There was nearly an inch of water in some areas. I have NEVER had this happen in the fifteen years living here.
This morning was another new experience as well. My garden which usually floods in heavy rains, had flooded up to my shade house. I had never seen this happen before. And this is supposed to be our dry season. My husband ventured out to take my daughter to her ride to go to work. On the way he told me there were cars washed into drains at the side of the road. He tried going to a gas station in Speightstown and that was also flooded. He had to make several detours to get back home. I am now going to try to get some badly needed sleep.
