We had some basement flooding - we're at almost the highest elevation in the county, too. The backyard is ruined - a drainage ditch broke through and washed and washed and washed. The water mark on the garage doors was about 6". But compared to what others have been through, I'm not complaining one bit. School's been out for the entire week.

The latest? They've re-routed I-20 traffic through Newnan!
