So in the after math, what was the damage. Not much, very nice given there is a creek that acts as a property line. It did flood the front field. The seeds I planted (just planted) probably washed away. The girl below is my step daughter. According to the signs of water flow...the water level was probably as tall as her..or almost...
But the peacock still stood. It's very heavy and is concreted into the ground. I was happy to see that I don't think hurricane won't bother it if a raging flood couldn't move it. I was glad I didn't fill it. Bear in mind, the peacock is over six feet and the debris (thus the water was up to its neck) literally.
The front field always has such black dirt. It think I know why, now. It is all the sediment from the creek landing on it.
The front creek is relatively lower compared to the rest of the property. Glad I planted a willow tree here as well. Even today (four days later) it still hasn't dried out.
Drive way eroded.
Well where the water is puddled...that's gonna be the tail. Glad I had not planted it yet.
The lilies survived but looked like the had been through a raging river which they did.
Marigolds driving in the middle of the driveway
God knows where my seeds went but some did sprout.
Some of the arches were pulled from the ground but easily remedied.
The pool was brown from all the run off. What was worse was all the rain, water moccasin came into the pool. Anyone who has a black bottom pool is very brave. We have seen four, managed to kill two.
