Thanks For Visiting Ophelia.

Yup, riggt down the street, we have a town here called. Ophelia. Lets go for a trip.

Todays headline could be read several ways. I will let the pics tell the story. Which is kinda odd, since it kinda makes sense. Which is also kinda odd since there is very little I say that makes sense. Make sense?

Through the windshield. There is a shot here. This is the process.

No one was on the road, so I got out to capture some ART! Not our ART, art, as in art. Looks better but still a road

BAM, ya and to lay down in the middle of the street. Same everything, but framed differently, lower angle, diffusion foreground… More moodyAnd that is not a turd.

And you have arrived. Okay, I arrived, and you are still sitting there with your coffee.

Beautiful isn’t it?

Actually it was a very peaceful moment, and then the drive back to Global HQ to assess the situation

Oh boy. Ophelia is cleaning up all the gravel. How nice

The good news is the wind wasnt nutso

I wonder is the Riv will float?

Inside. You can see how far the water came in. Today will be a tad worse, or better depending on how you look at it.

We always lower the flag pole to make sure it doesnt break

You can tell, I sure loved the colors in the sky, and the moodiness of it all.

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes and concern. We never lost any power, and things were open and running around here. The Boatress watched College Football all day, and Mr B just kinda enjoyed it all. Stay Tuned. I am not sure what for, but something will appear.

    Good to hear all is well at HQ! Cleanup should not be too bad. We had a small tornado hit us earlier this summer. That was messy, but both boats made it unscathed…my wife was ok also!

    Glad things are well and it wasn’t too bad. Still looks like some clean up will be required, but no real damage. You will be boating again in no time!

    Isn’t Ophelia crossing over the Chesapeake this morning? I guess her reduced strength should make for less trouble.

    Thanks NR for the reminder of this wonderful classic.

    I am a precipitation GEEK. I have been maintaining since 2004 an excel file in an effort to track our annual rain/snow(!) fall. We here in SE Wisconsin, are experiencing a very dry year. Okay, so here’s my question, FINALLY. Do you have a rain gauge, and if so, how much rain didja get?

    This is probably more appropriate with lyrics of “O Ophelia you been on my mind girl since the flood.”

    Glad to hear just a bit of clean up & no damage at HQ. Interesting study – how a scene is framed, makes such a difference in what is seen.

    Looks like some serious high water. I hope the damage isn’t too bad. I am glad the power stayed on and there were no casualties. Ophelia looks like a neat little town, the storm not so much. I enjoyed your videos Troy.

    I assume “Wecatchem” has been hauled but what about “Sweet Pea”? I just assume she didn’t make it into the photos. If you had any leaves, that surge would take care of that but hopefully not leaving any mud residue inside your building or on you gravel.

    The salt water should continue to add to the patina of the floor. The salt should also help to control any termite activity around the buildings.
