So….here’s what happens when you have flooding of record proportions (16 inches of rain in 24 hours!) and you live next to a flood plain…

These pictures were taken late saturday night and early sunday morning. I was able to get some pretty decent shots by waiting for large flashes of lighting… so that’s why some of them look like daylight… when it’s really midnight-ish.

    Those were some pretty tough pictures to see! Hope all of you were ok even though one of you weren’t there. I hope that you were in a safe place while you were taking those pictures of the storm. Hope you guys keep in touch while cleaning up after the storm! Take care of yourselves and hope to see you at camp next year!
