Default Do You Think It'* Safe To Cross??? / Will Drown For Beer

Creek has come down quite a bit. I tried to cross this water going over my driveway and almost got swept off my feet. Comtemplating raising my car all the way up and heading to the Country Market for Milk and Beer. Havent been out since Sunday.

You see it all the time on the News but now it'* really hit home. The Susquehanna is 20 feet over flood stage, the entire Eastside of Binghamton is under water, they have evacuated thousands, the Govenor on NY just got here, houses are floating down the river, and the flood wall that protects Downtown has just cracked open and they fear it will break and wipe out a majority of it.. So I quess my little problem isnt all that bad. But Beer would help.

All this and now a Dam at Deer lake has broken and what was suppose to be the crest of the flood has been put back as we wait for that water to hit here.

Aside from the flooding John, looks like a nice place to live. You should take some more pics of your property. Makes my .26 acre seem like a crumb.
