Last time?? 1972
How many times does it take? --- I didnt live in this house then
Why would you still live there?
-- Great place to live if you dont mind evacuating once a year. This is why there is flood insurance, When the water comes and recedes, call agent, sends money, get house remoddled...

That's a heck of a way to get a remodel!!! Glad it turned out well. If I were you, I'd invest in some sandbags. Maybe a levee. (J/K)

I live three blocks from a 41 foot high levy... If and when it ever goes that high again there is no use in even trying because the river will win. divemasterjim asked why do I still live here? that like asking someone from Florida or California why they still live there in the Hurricane and earthquake zone's or for that matter why do people continue to build in tornado alley, Because we all Like the area we live in for whatever reason... I guess we really are "just gluttins for punishment" something my grandmother used to say before her hand would meet my bottom. 8O

I'm glad evrything turned out for the best... If there is ever a next time, and you have to turn power off. (this will only work if the house doesn't go under of course) You can use a couple of 12v car batterys and a 12v/240v converter to run your air and heaters. depending on load this can last a day or two...
