Shutterbug Saturday: Frog Strangler

Posted on Updated on

Or, Toad Strangler or, Gully Washer… My dad was fond of the frog saying and my maternal grandfather always used the latter. All three are good descriptions of the storm that just swept through here, today. I haven’t seen this much water since Hurricane Matthew in 2016. Have mercy… ~Vic

I thought my chairs might float away.
The backdoor neighbor had his own mini-river.

Patio at the side door looks like a mini-swimming pool.
Water from the next door neighbor’s poor drainage…

The gold pick-up in the first photo…this is his backyard.
The Eno hasn’t crested, yet and, the water is at his backdoor right now.

Bench at Turnip Patch Park didn’t fare well.

    We’ve had similar a couple of times these last few years. If everyone’s safe and has a place to stay the rest will fix, fettle and mend. 🙂

      I agree.

      I’m glad I live on a bit of a hill overlooking the houses across the street with nature’s swimming pool in their backyards. Thankfully, the Eno doesn’t flood this much all the time. It’s been 2 1/2 years since the last one (hurricane).

    Last major flood we had I looked out and saw my car go bobbing along outside. Literally just saw “Wheelie bins… fencing… another wheelie bin.. ooh shit my car! Ah well full write off anyway” 😀

      OMG! LOL! Yikes… I would be distraught if I lost my truck like that.

        Two trailers, a massive pile of tractor tyres and a baling machine were swept up and never seen again – no word of a lie. Farmer was there “Where the bloody hell have my trailers gone?”

        Me “Off on their holidays probably stripped and weighed in for parts already I imagine”

            Ribble Valley / Whalley in Lancashire (England) on Boxing Day morning as well. Pain in the arse and took a full 8-months to gut and refurb the house but a pain in the arse is all it was I guess. Those trailers and tyres though I wonder where they eventually ended up :/

              Oh dear GOD. Those poor folks. Those pix reminded me of all the flooding in Houston. Awful.

              I’m sorry you went thru that.
