The Aftermath of Debby

Yesterday I showed you this collage with just the first two
images side by side, now I added the third one which
I took today.
You can see how much higher that Black Creek is.
It has reached the 100 year benchmark.
I doubt too many people in this county remember when the Creek
was at it's highest.

So many people got flooded out of their homes along the Creek.

Sad to see.
We've also had major roads and bridges collaspe all over the
neighboring counties. There are people unable to get out
because two main line "sinkholes" opened up cutting off
an exit for about 400 families last night.

Debby was simply a Tropical Depression and she has caused
millions, if not billions, in damage across the State. She impacted the panhandle
and also the mid section of Florida as well as going all the
way across the state from the Gulf of Mexico into the Atlantic.
She is about 200 miles east of us now and is expected to
intensify again. I think she has been projected to head out into the Atlantic without
impacting anyone else in the US.

In other dire news our hearts and prayers go out to the tragedy unfolding
in the Western part of the US in Colorado.
If only they could have had our rain to put out those massive fires.


  1. Oh man. That's just so terrible. Abundant purrs and prayers to you, and all those affected.

  2. That is horrible Abby, and the pictures are completely telling of this horrible weather event there. The fires in the west are so frightening and heartbreaking mom and I can scarcely believe it is so bad so fast. But it is.

  3. Oh wow! Dis is just awfuls to sees what ya'll has been dealing with. I seened on da news last night bout them sink holes.
    We is thinkin' of ya'll during dis time...our thoughts go out to ya'll and everybuddy else.


  4. It is terrible! Our purrs and prayers are with all those affected by the floods and the fires.

  5. crazy weather all over. We are supposed to be 98 in Michigan tomorrow which is NO WAY normal for us

  6. Purrs and purrayers for All Beings affected by both the terrible flooding and the fires. :-(

  7. Oh Abby - those are horrible conditions down there too. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope you don't have to worry about flooding? And yes, the fires in Colorado are horrible too. I think Mother Nature is really screwed up these days. She's making earth a miserable place for so many people.

  8. Such terrible flooding. It's always sad to see things like this because we feel so helpless. Fortunately Debby didn't dump as much rain on us. Too bad we couldn't have sent her to Colorado.

    The Florida Furkids and Lexi

  9. Ironic, isn't it? You need the rain to go away and they need it so badly. Devastating pics. We are so thankful our furriends are safe.

  10. So very sad. We were thinking the same thing, Colorado could sure use all that rain.

  11. WOW!!! Those are quite the pictures!!
    Yesterday we got 36mm of rain and the weatherman said that Florida was getting up to 600mm rain!!!!!
    (25mm =1 inch)
    That us a lot of rain !!!! We purr very hard for all the people affected and are glad you are all safe!!!!!
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure and JJ
    and mom Nancy

  12. Oh my, this is worse than I thought. I'm so glad you posted these. I always worry about displaced pets.

  13. Floods are scary. Having had some experience working for a public works dept assisting with flood warning, seeing the flood in person was quite scary. What came up first was the feeling of powerlessness, that all that water is going where it wants to go and nothing is going to stop it. The only thing to do is to get out of the way. I hope and pray that the recovery goes speedy for all those affected by the storm.

  14. Those pictures are shocking, we send our purrs and prayers to all those affected by theses disasters! We are glad you are okay, please stay safe.


  15. I'm so glad you're safe and sound. I only wish that everyone else was, too. purrs

  16. I feel awful about the humans and animals affected by Debby and by the Colorado fires! Yes, if only Colorado would get rain, and you guys could get less...

  17. we is purrring and purraying for all of you there - and also our dear friends in colorado.

    purrsss n nosekissies to mine gorgeous sweet tuxie princess angel Abby

    your adoring floofy cocoapuff meezerman Sammy

  18. I really think Fin could have straightened out this misdirection of resources! Stay dry!

    PS You really did make me feel much better about the photos. :-)

  19. Floods an fires are terrible! We just wish the two could get together...

  20. Not only is this scary, but its just the beginning of the season. I hate to think what the rest of the summer holds for us! We're purring for everyone affected by the rough weather and fires. We could have used some of Debby's rains.

  21. This is so sad. On one side, the residents have to deal with terrible flooding and at the other side, horrible fires. :(

  22. The irony of the fires and floods is mind blowing. Purrs and prayers to all involved. Keep safe :( xx


We always love hearing from you please leave some pawprints!
Happy purrs
