We're Building an Ark

Car crashes in the lawn, water main breaks....everything happens at night. I need a video camera with night mode.
We were quietly minding out business Sunday night when we heard frantic honking. A kind couple had stopped to alert us the only way they could that our yard was now a small river


Here's the source of the main break right at the top of our driveway. It would up flooding our garage, Dave's shop, the yard (duh), as well as several neighboring yards.



The water flowing toward the house


Dave's looking for the nearest rice paddy

Mudslide
Here's lots of video that didn't turn out too well due to lack of light. Good sound though! The last one is of water running under the house.


Our yard is ruined to say the least, but the good people of Madison County have grudgingly promised to repair everything....in a few MONTHS. No lie. :(
