The 2011 Flood, Take II

Well, we just could not get away from the saturated grounds and the record 4″ of rainfall in 12 hours around the Cumberland Valley this week – and the Yellow Breeches broke through it banks for the second time in about a month.

This time, the gauges hit a new high (since 2000) of 12.1 ft and put water into the pump house for the second time.

Luckily, we were able to disconnect everything again and get set for the overflow.

So now, we are just counting on the odds – and we hope that another ‘over-the-pump-house’ flood will not occur again for at least another 5 to 10 years. ¬†Crossing my fingers – and thankful that we escaped with just some more accumulated mud.
