Here are some pics from my back yard situated in Madeira Beach, one mile from the beach. We have a lagoon that is currently about 3 feet higher than it normally is. In fact, you can normally see a seawall all around it, but the water is now over that. (Picture #4 shows the lagoon at it's normal height). The lagoon has now entered the yard. My door is about 100 feet from the water. If it continues to rise, we may have to start moving things to a higher location. But, I am in a one story home, so I do not have a higher place to go to. I will just move things onto the counters I guess.
Some pics show trees and bushes that are now under water. Typically the water is 5 feet away from and above the water line. It's a steep slope into the water, but you can't see that anymore. I've also sent a pic that shows the wind blowing pretty hard, as well as a pic of the distance from my back door to the water. Hopefully it doesn't get any closer. I'll update you later...
