    DS just texted me from his walk to the bus and its says 'your pond exploded'. I look out the window and sure enough, it has breached its banks and is now pouring through the yard. I opened the window and its sounds like Niagara Falls out there from the rush of water.



    No. No. Nooooooooooooooo....

    Its still foggy and I couldnt get any closer as I got a little panicky.

    This is normally 3 feet lower. Our picnic table is just inches from the top left

    This is our horse paddock...They will be spending a few days in their stalls I think

    This is running across the back of our driveway farther into the 'holler'

    Oh no, Kim! Yikes! Dorothy's, Feathersandfluff, pond exploded too! She can't get out of her house! She's in West TN. She said she opened her front door yesterday morning and there was a 40 lb catfish lying there! LOL

    I've been to her house and she has a HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE pond. When it rains heavily, it floods her entire property.

    Your poor horses, Kim!

    Here its the wind and we have trees falling down around us. We had two we had to remove off the power lines.
