Just wanted everyone to know about the flooding we had in central New York.  Most of it came as flash floods with major damage to the area.  I live in Delaware County which is right between Albany and Binghamton.  Binghamton area got it worse than we did.

I just got my electric back and the computer is on the 2nd floor so my dh said it would be okay to use.  We need an elctrician to assess the damage done to everyhting else.  I can't wait to get water and phone.  WE went from dry to a housde surrounded with 3 feet  of water in 10-15 minues.  I truly understand what a flash flood is now.  Within another 20 minutes we had 2 feet in out living area.  The water in the house has receded, but it is full of mud and has an awful stench.  We had no time to put stuff up, so who know what is salvagable yet.

Roads are washed out, bridges gone, and an apartment collapsed.  I think this site has some pictures if you want to see some of the damage.

So, please be thinking of any Monkeys in this area.  I haven't posted much lately, due to the lack of news, but was pretty active earlier on and in the chat room when it was up.

I am so sorry to hear that this flooding has affected your home like this.  I have family in the Binghamton area, and in Ithaca.  Also in Trenton, NY, and in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  Geesh.  What a mess.  I remember flying over the floods around the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers in 1993 or 94.
