The house on the rock stood firm

Hey, no harm, no foul. The waters still never have come up to the house. Here is a picture from this morning. You can see more snow has melted since yesterday.

You can get some idea of the strength and speed of the current from seeing how it breaks around the pin oak tree. The water is not just sitting there, it's flowing westward.

Here you can see how the ground rises toward the neighbor's house, so that it is above the flood plain. Ours is the same, plus we have a retaining wall around our deck.

Here you can see the waters have receded from the retaining wall.

I'm too sleepy to say much more. Interrupted sleep last night.
