I didn't necessarily have visions of a lush garden full of plants heavily laden with vegetables when we started this garden, but I really did not envision the dying swamp we have now. I really thought I'd be able to keep up this blog with tales of the garden, but instead I have tales of flooding. We do still dream of replanting... if we ever dry out...

Farmer B took these pictures tonight on the way home from work. It was getting dark and they were taken with his camera phone, but this is our street. He said the kids were going underwater and resurfacing, like they were in a swimming pool, but it was the road. You can click on them to see them bigger.

It's just crazy. The rivers are overflowing. The lakes are overflowing. Neighborhoods are still being evacuated. The road from our house to Aidan's preschool is closed due to flooding.

And we just leaned about Tropical Storm Gustav - with Florida in his path.
