    and high tide isn't even for another hour.... I almost caught a craw fish under my house next to the stairs lol
    I'm trying to upload some pics right now so you can see what I mean... I already had to cut one of our drain pipes so it didn't get backed up [​IMG] AND my chickens are mad at me because I've had to keep them locked up for 2 days.. I don't know/think they're very good swimmers, good thing the coop is over 3' off the ground lol
    OK I just went out with my level to try and measure how deep it is...it's 11in by my pump house and 5in right by the stairs under the house but it gets deeper the further under and towards the back of the house you go and actually gets deeper than my boots can handle. And its all deeper than it looks lol

    Have you read the original Pooh books? I love those stories.
    Kind of a random thing to bring up but one story was about a flood. I want to see your pictures!

    There is standing water in my run. This has never happened before and I really don't know what to do about it. It's on a slope so I don't understand how it is possible. I am really hating it.

    Is it all from the rain from Ida?
