Flood-walls and First Timers


HI ALL !
THESE ARE MY HUBBIES VERY FIRST BLOG PHOTOS ;)
NOT, BAD, HUH ?
ESPECIALLY SINCE IT WAS RAINING, ALMOST DARK,
 AND A PERFECTIONIST WAS "DIRECTING" HIM ;)
I WAS DOING A CAT-FOOD RUN AND THREW ON THIS DIY DRESS, 
WHICH USED TO BE A MAXI FROM TARGET, (DURING THE 90'S), 
I CHOPPED IT OFF, TURNED IT BACKWARDS 
AND TIED THE REALLY THICK TIE IN THE FRONT.

    I SEEM TO BE 'STUCK' HERE FOR A WHILE LONGER, AS FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE GREAT FLOOD OF THE THIRTIES, I CANNOT GET INTO MY HOMETOWN! AFTER THOSE FLOODS, WHICH SWALLOWED UP A HUGE PART OF THE MID-WEST, A 'FLOOD-WALL' WAS BUILT TO SURROUND THE TINY TOWN OF STURGIS, KY. A 8/9 FOOT WALL OF DIRT AND ROCK WAS BUILT AROUND THE CITY LIMITS. THERE ARE ALSO "DOORS", (I'M NOT SURE WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF, I THINK CONCRETE, I'LL GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT ONE), AND ARE BEING SLID  INTO PLACE SO THE OHIO RIVER WON'T FLOOD OUR LITTLE TOWN, THOUGH MOST HIGHWAYS ARE ALREADY COVERED  WITH WATER,  THEY WILL CLOSE THEM OVER THE HIGHWAY ENTRANCES TO STOP THE RISING WATER...
PRETTY AMAZING STUFF, HUH !
( I HOPE MY MOM AND DAD GET THEMSELVES A BOAT, JUST IN CASE ;)
