Deja Vu All Over Again


A year ago today, the Cape Neddick River Bridge looked like this. The Mother's Day Flood of 2006 caused extensive damage in New England and in our county. It started raining and it didn't stop. We played 100's of games of ping pong and checked the cellar for rising water. No water in the cellar, but our water saturated back yard shifted and sank and with it, our chimney shifted and sank away from the house. We were very blessed to have nothing worse happen. Businesses were flooded; our village made the front page of USAToday.

The forecast for the next few days isn't nearly as bad, but it surely does provide a reminder of our water soaked May 2006.

I remember that! Were you here in 1996, when were got 20" of rain in southern Maine over 3 days and coastal York and Cumberland counties (especially OOB) were entirely under water?
Keep your fingers crossed for good weather for me in Philly this wekend!
