Why? Why? Why?!!

So...My computer has been acting stupid. That is all Verizon's fault!! And my Direct TV (satellite) has been acting stupid as well. I have three satellite receivers and TWO of them didn't work as of last night. So I called Direct TV last night and told them that two of my receivers weren't getting signal. They did one thing and told me that they couldn't help me, I needed to call a service man. Well one of my receivers hasn't been working but it is in my craft room and Im usually doing more important things then watching TV in there so it wasn't a big deal BUT when our 56 inch big screen doesn't have TV especially on a Sunday when football is on, that is a huge problem. Anyway... when the lady told me that she couldn't help me or tell me why it was working just ten minutes before it went out, I turned red in the face and hung up and screemed obsenities. So my internet has been acting up and I couldn't connect to the internet for a while. When I was tring to connect like an hour ago and it wasn't working, I looked at my boyfriend and told him that I was going to call Verizon and scream at them and tell him that it was all direct TV's fault and jon said, "Ummm..... Candi, Verizon and Direct TV are oowned together." Well... I turned red in the face and wanted to throw the computer but I closed my eyes and counted to 10 about.... only fifty times and calmed down. I then calmly (somehow) got online and now Im here finally posting my pictures of the storm...
(Above) This is a picture of the first day of the storm before high tide, the water is already o half of the street.
(Above) This is a picture of the town dock when the water is already in the parking lot above the boat ramp.

(Above) (Two pictures) Now this is almost high tide on the first day, it didn't quite cover that hump of grass. But definatly covered the whole road and most peoples yards.
(Above) This is a road believe it or not. The car is pulled off on the high part of the road and is still stalled out. (isn't mine lol)

(Above) UHG!! This is the highest tide we had Friday morning. high tide was at 5:30 am and this picture is at 3:30 am. Its a bad picture but I want to tell you! It took my mulch out of my flower beds and left it in my back yard. Now my back yard is higher then my front and I have mulch on my first step to my back door. Even our garage was about 6 inches under and that is in my very back yard.

(Above) Is a picture of my back yard after the storm was over and the tide was gone.

(Above) Flooded street.
(Above) Someone thinks they are funny kyaking down our stret in front of our house. lol The tide was only half on the street but it is still funy.

I'l be back with a stitchin update soon. :)

Ouch about the tv and the internet. Hopefully Verison/Direct TV will come to its senses and everything will be back to normal.
The aftereffects of that storm look impressive. Sure am glad I don't have to kayak down my front street!

Wow! I hope that the water subsides soon. I'm had my car stuck halfway under water due to flood before and it was gross to clean out.

I hope Verizon finally does something to get your service back to normal! You are paying for it after all.

We wondered how it was down that way. Glad you made it through OK. Hope they get all the TV issues cleared up.
