I am very grateful that we live on a hill. We did not have any damage or anything. Besides just rain. We took a drive through Candor and Catatonk area and stopped at Iron Kettle to check on our farmer friends. They only had a little bit of water and only lost some products nothing compared to some. We know that some of our farmer friends down in Windsor got flooded really bad as well. We were told that Binghamton Urban Farm also got flooded to the point that they will not have any fall crops. :( We are so sorry for you all!
I am sure some of you readers got it as well. This has been heartbreaking to say the least. But if there is anything that we can do please let us know and we will try to help out the best we can. We have a ton of eggs if people are looking for eggs. I know some grocery stores are out. We have some rabbit meat and some tomatoes if anyone needs some of that stuff.

was flooded as well that is the parking lot I took the picture from.

It breaks my heart to see some of the devastation on people's faces. The hurt the pain of losing everything. It is just something I can't describe.
We still have not heard a lot about Nichols and we have a farmer friend who lives there that last we had heard was under 7 ft of water. We heard that on Wednesday I believe and have not received any other news. We are concerned hoping they are ok. The waters that are receding here right now are headed for that direction. I read a comment on Facebook that the news people put on stating that they cannot report on what they can not get to and at this time they can't get to Nichols to say what is going on. We praying for everyone in the devastation.
It is amazing however that we have not heard about deceased or majorly injured at this time. It is unbelievable that a disaster of this nature has not taken lives thus far. If it has and we have not heard about it I am truly sad and sorry for those families.
