Tropical Storm Issac: A view from the Acreage

I moved to the Acreage in Loxahatchee nearly a decade ago. We went through Hurricanes Francis, Jean and Wilma but have never seen flooding like this.

Indian Trail improvement District and the South Florida Water Management District are trying to pump the water out but unfortunately, there is nowhere to pump it to. Many residents (including me) are stranded in their homes.

This is a photo of a pile of fire ants trying not to drown:

My back yard:

Here’s the front yard. We’re on septic tanks out here and the drainfield is flooded so no toilets can be flushed and we can’t use the water.

My street:

We have a pond in the back yard (left of that big bush). The pond and the the flooded side yard are now one.
